Electric Cooperative Development
NRECA International promotes the electric cooperative model as the best way to bring safe, affordable and reliable power in developed as well as developing economies. Electric cooperatives have the power to harness innovation, community self-interest, and mutual self-reliance to overcome significant economic obstacles to long-term sustainability. Together with our partners, we remain committed to helping communities use the cooperative model to build lasting connections, gain a more effective voice in their cooperative and, in turn, build stronger economies. Since 1962, we have helped establish 250 electric cooperatives that represent some of the largest and most successful cooperatives in the world.
