Possible CVEC/ CREC Consolidation

     Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative (CVEC) and Central Rural Electric Cooperative (CREC) are currently studying the benefits of a potential consolidation between the two cooperatives. Both boards have had extensive discussions during the past year and studies have been initiated to look at the possibility. Plans are, if the studies are positive, to take it to a vote of the membership sometime in 2015. Both cooperatives are financially sound and have employee groups that bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. Stay tuned as we travel on this journey together.

We will continue to provide updates in the Electralite, social media sites and other communication methods as well.
