Partner With Your Local Co-op

Together with our consumer-members, North Carolina’s 26 electric cooperatives are creating a brighter future for North Carolina’s rural people and communities. Our innovation and actions are guided by our local roots and focus on delivering value to cooperative members and communities. In this decade and beyond, we will continue our commitment to providing reliable electricity at the lowest possible cost while also advancing the pursuit of responsible sustainability goals.

Concern for community is a hallmark of the cooperative difference, and we continue to invest in education grants and programs, zero-interest economic development loans, the deployment of rural broadband and other efforts aimed at improving the daily lives of our members and strengthening our communities.
