About Nueces Electric Cooperative
Nueces Electric Cooperative (NEC) is more than a non-profit, customer-owned, "at cost" electric utility. Founded in 1938, today NEC serves over 19,000 electric meters for consumers in eight South Texas counties surrounding the beautiful Texas Gulf Coast. Nueces Electric Cooperative is a proactive cooperative who is paving ways in the cooperative industry. In 2005, Nueces Electric Cooperative became the first electric cooperative to voluntarily deregulate. We are the only deregulated electric Co-op in Texas and only one of a handful in the United States. NEC leadership started the conversation in 1999, and NEC membership voted to open to the electric choice market in 2000. In 2005, parent company, Nueces Electric Cooperative, officially introduced NEC Retail, the Co-op's competitive retail subsidiary. Today, NEC Retail serves the retail electric needs of over 32,000 consumers across Texas.
