Rural electric cooperatives power much of the nation – and many local economies, according to the latest data. The electric co-ops:

  • Cover most of the U.S. landmass.
  • Serve 42 million Americans, from rural areas to growing suburbs.
  • Invest $12 billion annually in communities.
  • Provide 71,000 jobs.

Electric co-ops also are reducing emissions even as they have increased the total amount of electricity they generate.
