One of the distinguishing features of cooperatives is member involvement. A cooperative is a business voluntarily owned and controlled by its members and operated for them and by them on a non-profit basis. In contrast, an investor-owned utility is directed by stockholders, who generally invest for a return on their investment, not because the product or service is one that should be provided or because a particular community will benefit from it.
Prior to 1935, only about ten percent of our nation's countryside had electricity in the home. Companies providing electricity were, for the most part, investor-owned where making a profit was imperative. In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed an executive order establishing the Rural Electrification Administration. The order was signed into law in 1936, paving the way for electrification of rural America.
Warren RECC is run by an elected, eight-member Board of Directors. Each Director is a member, not an employee, of the Cooperative. The board establishes policies and procedures of the Cooperative.
