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

From the mountains to the Piedmont and the coast, North Carolina’s 26 electric cooperatives serve members in 93 of the state’s 100 counties. Each not-for-profit cooperative is independent and as diverse as the communities they serve, although the statewide network of co-ops works closely together to ensure all members are served as reliably, affordably and safely as possible.

Over the course of their history, NC co-ops have formed organizations to support the work they do, each with its own governing board of directors made up of representatives from each member co-op. Today, this family of organizations is collectively known as North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives.
