The Utah Rural Electric Cooperative Association was formed in 1963 by the state's six rural electric cooperatives. Since then, cooperatives from Nevada, Wyoming, Idaho and Colorado have joined. URECA's goal remains the same today as it was in 1963 - represent the collective interests of the members in numerous public forums.
Electric cooperatives are different from other power utility suppliers in Utah in two key areas - ownership and purpose. Electric cooperatives are owned by the members who receive their electrical service. As a result, customers are known as members in the co-op, and each own a share of the co-op and receive one vote in electing the board of directors. The very heart of the cooperative form of business is democratic control which ensures the co-op listens and responds to customer's needs.
