Owned By Those We Serve
Central Rural Electric Cooperative is a member-owned distribution cooperative. This means that if you purchase power from Central, then you literally own a portion of the company. Electric cooperatives are member owned and democratically controlled.
Board of Trustees
The service area is divided into seven districts and each district elects a member to serve on the board of trustees. Every year, an annual meeting is held to conduct the business of the cooperative. Meet your board members.
Central is a not-for-profit businesses. Any margins related to the sale of electricity remaining after all expenses have been paid are returned to our members in proportion to their electrical use. These margins, called patronage capital, are allocated each year by the board of trustees and retired to members.
