Where Our Power Comes From
North Carolina’s electric cooperatives work hard to provide you with safe, affordable and reliable electricity. And although the electrons you use in your home all work the same, the plants where they’re generated do not.
This fuel mix includes assets owned by the North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation — the Raleigh-based power supplier serving most of the state’s electric cooperatives — as well as distributed generation resources and power purchased from other generators. Like a good investment portfolio, a diverse fuel mix helps ensure reliability and affordability for consumers.
