Since 1941, Cuivre River Electric Cooperative (CREC) has been proud to serve its members across five counties: Lincoln, Montgomery, Pike, St. Charles, and Warren counties in Missouri. CREC is the largest of Missouri's 40 consumer-owned electric distribution cooperatives, providing electricity to more than 70,000 homes and businesses.
CREC is owned and governed by you, the members it serves. Understanding what guides us, how we operate, and why your involvement is important is vital to our organization. As a member, you are also entitled to unique cooperative benefits.
Meet your cooperative's leadership: the board, who directs CREC's business according to our bylaws, and the management team who manages the cooperative's day-to-day operatives and our 135 employees.
In 1941, twelve individuals came together to form what would become Cuivre River Electric Cooperative. Our rich history has led us to become the largest electric cooperative in the great State of Missouri.
