Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative’s mission statement is to safely provide reliable electric power and related services at the best possible value for our members.

Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative was established in 1936. With headquarters in Woodbine, Iowa our cooperative provides electrical service to members in portions of Harrison, Shelby, Monona, Crawford and Pottawattamie Counties. As a rural electric distribution cooperative, we are proud of our heritage and we strive to provide quality electrical services to our members. The job of rural electrification is never done -- to keep the lights on!

With 1,104 miles of distribution line (both overhead and underground cable), Harrison County Rural Electric Cooperative currently has over 2,364 members and provides electrical service to 3,770 meters.

The cooperative is owned and governed by those we serve. Directors to the board are nominated and elected by the membership, giving them a vested interest in the operation of the cooperative.
