To foster and enhance connections between members and their electric co-ops through platforms that entertain, educate and engage.

North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives power and empower the people and communities they serve. Twenty-six local electric cooperatives, as well as a family of support organizations, make up the network of electric cooperatives that collectively serve 1 million homes and businesses in 93 North Carolina counties from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Outer Banks. Each electric cooperative is not-for-profit, independent and owned by the local members it serves.

Touchstone Energy is the network of local, member-owned electric cooperatives around the country committed to providing superior service at affordable rates to all members, large and small. More than 740 cooperatives across the nation, representing 22 million consumer-members, are part of the network. Touchstone Energy cooperatives abide by four core values: integrity, innovation, accountability and commitment to community. Learn more at
