Delaware Electric Cooperative was formed in 1936 by a group of farmers in southern Delaware. The major utilities at the time wouldn’t invest the capital to expand the electrical infrastructure to rural areas, so farmers formed a non-profit utility and financed rural electrification themselves. The Co-op has changed a lot since the 1930s, but we are still member-owned. Any profits or margins we post are returned to those we serve and every decision that’s made at the Co-op is made in the best interest of our members.
Today, Delaware Electric Cooperative is a nationally recognized utility with a reputation for innovation and a dedication to providing members with energy that is reliable, affordable and, most importantly, sustainable.
