    More than 2.5 million North Carolinians depend upon North Carolina's electric cooperatives to provide reliable and safe electric power. At the heart of the network are the state's 26 electric cooperatives, each locally owned and controlled by their consumer members. These not-for-profit cooperatives serve about 850,000 homes, farms, industries and businesses in 93 of NC's 100 counties and parts of three other states: South Carolina, Georgia and Tennessee.

    Serving the electric cooperatives from the Raleigh state offices are:
    North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation, a power generation and transmission cooperative; North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives, Inc., a service association providing employee and management training, government relations and communications, safety training, and other services; and The Tarheel Electric Membership Association, Inc., a central purchasing and materials supply cooperative.
