DEC was formed in 1936 by a group of farmers in southern Delaware.
In 1936, very few Delaware families had electric service. Our country was beginning to emerge from the devastating effects of the Great Depression, and times were hard for everyone. During those difficult times, a consensus formed
among Delawareans that in order for rural residents to survive, electric service must be provided to farmers. Interested residents in Sussex County began exploring how the Rural Electrification Act could help their communities. A meeting was held in 1936 for the purpose of establishing the Delaware Rural Electric Association. As a result of this meeting and the efforts of the incorporators, the cooperative was organized and incorporated in 1936. The first lines were energized in March 1938 serving 223 members with 94 miles of line and one small substation in Greenwood.
Today, Delaware Electric Cooperative serves 105,000 meters with over 8,500 miles of lines and 27 substations throughout Kent and Sussex counties.
Delaware Electric Cooperative is a member of Old Dominion Electric Cooperative, located in Glen Allen, Virginia. ODEC is an electrical generation and transmission cooper...ative, which provides power to 11 electric cooperatives in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. ODEC has partial ownership of several power plants in Virginia and Maryland and provides electric to 1.2 million people.
ODEC is owned by Delaware Electric Cooperative and the other 10 electric cooperatives it serves. The organization was formed in 1948 and continues to help cooperatives provide efficient and low-cost energy to their members. DEC provides members power from a variety of sources, including coal, nuclear, natural gas, landfill gas, wind and solar. Currently, ten percent of our energy comes from renewable sources.
