What is a cooperative?


A cooperative is a voluntary, contractual organization of people having a mutual ownership interest in providing themselves a service on a not-for-profit basis. Most commonly, consumers join together to purchase something that otherwise is not cost-effectively available to them. CFC is a cooperative and its members are primarily other cooperatives.




How are cooperatives different from other businesses/utilities?


Cooperative businesses are unique because they are owned by the members they serve (as opposed to shareholders) and because they are guided by a set of seven principles that reflect the best interests of those consumers.




Why cooperatives?


In 1929 only 9.5 percent of farms in America had access to central station electric service because the costs to run electricity to more remote areas was prohibitive and unprofitable. So, in 1935 President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) to provide funding for farm communities to establish electric cooperatives
