Richland Electric Cooperative provides electric service to members in Richland County and parts of Crawford, Sauk and Vernon counties. Richland Electric Cooperative also provide Exede satellite Internet service, dial-up Internet service and First Call emergency response telephone service to members and area residents of the greater Richland County area.
We are organized as a cooperative and as such we are not just an ordinary business. We are a business owned by our member-consumers. We provide service to over 3,500 members in and around Richland County, Wisconsin. In order to receive electric service from REC you must be a member of the cooperative. You also have a voice in how our cooperative is operated. You are represented by a Board of Directors that are members of the cooperative. Each year you have the opportunity to vote for your choice of director or, if you desire, run for the position yourself. Director elections are held each year at our Annual Meeting held in March. There are nine directors on the REC Board and three are up for election each year.

Outage Texting, Now Available!
November 5, 2015, we deployed a new service to the membership, the ability to TEXT an electrical outage to us. The service will provide an alternative to calling us in an outage situation. "The new service is faster and just as accurate as a phone call, states Cooperative CEO and General Manager Shannon Clark. "Almost 60% of Americans currently text. The percentage of our membership might be slightly less than that but that percentage is increasing. For those who prefer to text, this new service is the perfect solution.
