You are a Consumer-Member
Our mission is to make a difference in our community by
delivering safe and reliable energy to our members at fair prices.
The most important difference between Union Rural Electric Cooperative
and other electric utilities is that we are a cooperative.
We are member-driven, not-for profit.
Proud of our heritage and value the community we serve.
We are locally owned and locally governed.
We are uniquely consumer-member oriented.
Cash Back: Any excess revenues from our business operation get shared back with you over time, based on your patronage in the business.
As a consumer-member, you share responsibility for our success or failure, along with the benefits you receive.
The most important way you can demonstrate your responsibility is by participating in the annual election of trustees.
Did you know you are represented by a Board of Trustees - members and consumers just like YOU - who act as the voice of the membership.
There are seven positions on the board, defined by the URE service territory.
No two co-ops are exactly alike. That is because every co-op is shaped by the community it serves, each with specific needs.
Members are also encouraged to speak up on the legislative issues that affect our cooperative. An active membership is the Cooperative’s best defense.
