Welcome to the Oregon Rural Electric Cooperative Association
ORECA - Oregon's Rural Electric Cooperative Association represents the legislative and regulatory interests of Oregon's 18 not-for-profit, consumer-owned electric cooperative utilities. Electric cooperatives are consumer-owned, not-for-profit utilities governed by member elected boards of directors. Oregon’s electric cooperatives were first organized in the 1930’s to bring electric power to under-served rural areas. All 18 Oregon co-ops are members of ORECA.
Cooperatives serve over 10% of Oregon’s electricity consumers, are located in 32 counties and maintain 26,000 miles of line traversing Oregon’s most rugged terrain.
