Electric Cooperatives

Since 1936 electric co-ops have built 2.5 million miles of power lines across rural America – long enough to reach from the earth to the moon five and a half times.

Statewide, electric cooperatives serve more than 1 million Alabamians in their homes, businesses, farms and schools. Their coverage spans approximately 70% of Alabama’s landmass.
