A commitment to both the communities and members we serve are at the heart of Cuivre River Electric Cooperative’s core values and have been since we were founded in 1941. Cuivre River Electric strives to help better your community by providing community, economic and educational opportunities to our members.
Although the employees of CREC have been involved in giving back to the community for many years, our efforts were formalized in 2018 when the #CuivreCares program was initiated.
Every year, CREC delivers safety and energy programs to thousands of new students. Energy education materials on topics such as storm safety, energy efficiency, and electrical safety are also available to our members, friends, and community neighbors.
As a cooperative, CREC is active in supporting education and opportunities for its community's youth. We're proud to offer leadership opportunities as well as scholarships to eligible students.
