What is an electric cooperative?

We are a nonprofit organization that is owned and controlled by the members of our community. Our company is guided by these seven principles:

Voluntary & Open Membership

Cooperatives are voluntary organizations; open
to all persons able to use their services and
willing to accept the responsibilities of
membership.

Democratic Member Control

Cooperatives are democratic organizations
controlled by their members, who actively
participate in setting policies and making
decisions.

Members’ Economic Participation

Members contribute equitably to, and
democratically control, the capital
of their cooperative.

Autonomy & Independence

Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help
organizations controlled by their
members.

Education, Training & Information

Cooperatives provide education and training
for their members, elected representatives,
managers and employees so they can contribute
effectively to the development of their cooperatives.

Cooperation Among Cooperatives

Cooperatives serve their members most
effectively and strengthen the cooperative
movement by working together.

Concern For Community

While focusing on our member needs, Magic Valley
works for the sustainable development of
the Rio Grande Valley community

Our History

In the early 1930s, most of rural America was in the dark. Power suppliers did not expand their lines to reach the people living outside of the cities. In 1936, Congress created the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) to provide commercial electric companies loans to supply power to rural areas. After the commercial companies neglected to make use of these loans, locally owned cooperatives took charge.
