About Carroll White REMC
We are a not-for-profit electric cooperative and wholesale provider of electricity to our owner-members. Headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, we were created out of the need for reliable, affordable electricity in America's heartland. Our members are 23 electric distribution cooperatives (which makes us a co-op of co-ops), and their members include over 300,000 homes, businesses and farms in Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. As a not-for-profit co-op, our members are our owners, so we aren't influenced by shareholders and old practices. We are guided by the seven cooperative principles that govern all co-ops and values that are important to us, like teamwork and putting family first. We are a Deliberately Different kind of power provider- built for stability and growth and focused on the future. And that's good news for the people and businesses who depend on us.
Our company is big enough to provide training and professional development to further your career goals, yet small enough that you can maintain a personal connection with fellow employees. Employees are our most valuable assets, so we put employees first by offering an excellent benefits package, wellness benefits, and we throw in some fun activities along the way.
