North Western Electric Cooperative, headquartered in Bryan, Ohio, is a member-owned electric power corporation supplying electric energy to over 6,000 member-customers in portions of Williams, Defiance, Henry and Paulding counties. North Western Electric is one of the 26 rural electric distribution cooperatives in Ohio.
Ownership makes the difference! Unlike investor-owned utilities that must balance the interest of the customer with that of Wall Street or the municipal utility that is operated by governmental bureaucrats, electric cooperatives provide services solely in the interest of the member. The results can be amazing. Each and every employee of the rural electric program works for the benefit of the member, while the member is treated with the uncommon distinction that he/she is the owner. We think that makes a powerful difference in today's competive marketplace.
