North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives are driven by service and inspired by innovation. This mission is reflected in our efforts to pursue forward-thinking initiatives that not only keep North Carolina’s 26 electric co-ops at the forefront of our industry, but also improve quality of life for the 2.5 million people we serve in 93 of the state’s 100 counties.
