North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives

Since 1943, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives have worked as a statewide association to promote training, safety and education among their consumers and the general public. NCAEC programs serve the needs of their 26 member cooperatives. These needs include:

  • Government relations in Washington, D.C., Raleigh and local communities
  • Carolina Country magazine, published monthly for consumer-members since 1946
  • Training programs and conferences for co-op directors, managers and staffs
  • Youth scholarships, education programs and tours to Washington, D.C.
  • Safety and job training for line workers
  • Strategic communications planning, advertising and branding, and community relations efforts on behalf of the member cooperatives
