(National Rural Electric Cooperative Association)
The NRECA is a national organization representing the national interests of the cooperative electric utilities and the consumers they serve. NRECA was founded in 1942, and organized specifically to overcome World War II shortages of electric construction materials, to obtain insurance coverage for newly constructed rural electric cooperatives, and to mitigate wholesale power problems. Since those early days, NRECA has been an advocate for consumer-owned cooperatives on energy and operational issues as well as rural community and economic development.
