NRECA International

We power communities and empower people
to improve their quality of life

Our Commitment

Since 1962, NRECA International has empowered more than 160 million people worldwide to improve their quality of life by providing them access to safe, reliable and affordable electricity. This is accomplished by a diverse team of engineers, rural electrification experts, financial analysts and more, who design and implement successful rural electrification programs that bring power to communities. We have helped establish more than 250 electric utilities and electric cooperatives in 48 countries. For the millions of people who have benefitted from our work, we remain committed to improving education, healthcare, and economic opportunities through sustainable electrification.


Get Involved

Our work is supported by charitable donations of time, money and materials from more than 300 American electric cooperatives, organizations and individuals. We thank the hundreds of electric co-op directors, lineworkers, engineers, and managers who have volunteered to bring first-time access to electricity, and train local utilities be sustainable in their own communities. We need your continued support.
