The Greater Franklin County Chamber of Commerce’s September Spotlight is @WakeElectric. Wake Electric Cooperative is an electric distribution cooperative owned and controlled by thousands of people just like you—the consumer-members. Member services include residential, business, and new construction.
Wake Electric was organized as a cooperative in 1940 and operates on a nonprofit basis, abiding by the 7 Cooperative Principles:
Voluntary and Open Membership
Democratic Member Control
Members’ Economic Participation
Autonomy and Independence
Education, Training, and Information
Cooperation Among Cooperatives
Concern for Community
Wake Electric also has a magazine called Carolina Country.
Inside you’ll find “ElectriConnection,” a newsletter filled with information specific to Wake Electric members. Carolina Country magazine is published in Raleigh by the North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives, a statewide co-op serving all 26 non-profit electric co-ops in NC, including Wake Electric.
Wake Electric also has a 2019 Bright Ideas Grant Applications. Applications are now being accepted!
