For nearly a century, REC has embraced the power to bring communities together. It started with people, just like you, who set out on a mission decades ago to bring power to our communities. Your electric Cooperative was built on a foundation of caring, service, integrity, and respect by its two founding cooperatives, Virginia Electric Cooperative (VEC) and Northern Piedmont Electric Cooperative (NPEC). A lot has changed at REC in 75 years, but a lot remains the same.
REC continues its legacy today as an industry leader that has grown to serve portions of over 22 counties in Virginia. REC exists to enhance the lives of its members by providing reliable, affordable electric service and by playing an active role in enhancing the social and economic well-being of the communities it serves. The employees at REC work every day to improve reliability, provide outstanding customer service, and bring new technology, programs and services to enhance member's lives. These efforts will help REC power its communities for the next 75 years.
