In Virginia, Maryland and Delaware, electric cooperatives provide safe, reliable and affordable electric service to rural areas and emerging suburbs. Since their inception, cooperatives have been deeply involved in their communities. Today, many have expanded their efforts to meet other needs that exist in their service areas. This site is provided to you by the collective efforts of these cooperatives and offers trusted expertise on energy efficiency matters.
Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC) is a generation and transmission cooperative and is the wholesale power supplier to its member-owned distribution electric cooperatives. For more than 60 years, ODEC has remained a trusted energy provider for our distribution members who provide electric energy to nearly 600,000 homes and businesses throughout Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.
Your electric cooperative is one of 11 distribution cooperatives who govern and set policy for the organization. ODEC exists because of your cooperative, and more specifically the valued members we serve together—people such as yourself and your family.
It’s about energy. We want to keep it affordable and make sure it’s an abundant resource in the future. The small actions we take now make a difference in how much you spend each month.
