DEFINITION
Co-Op

This is the commonly used term for a rural electric cooperative. Rural electric cooperatives generate and purchase wholesale power, arrange for the transmission of that power, and then distribute the power to serve the demand of rural customers. Coops typically become involved in ancillary services such as energy conservation, load management and other demandside management programs in order to serve their customers at least cost.
