Electric cooperatives

Electric cooperatives are:

  • Private, independent, non-profit electric utility businesses
  • Owned by the customers they serve
  • Incorporated under the laws of the states in which they operate
  • Established to provide at cost electric service
  • Governed by a board of directors elected from the membership which sets policies and procedures that are implemented by the cooperatives’ management

Community Choice Aggregation

Community Choice Aggregation is an alternative to the investor owned utility energy supply system in which local entities in the United States aggregate the buying power of individual customers within a defined jurisdiction in order to secure alternative energy supply contracts. (Wikipedia)
