Richland Electric Cooperative Response to Covid-19
As a member-owned electric cooperative we believe it is absolutely necessary to inform members about actions we are taking to ensure the safety and well-being of our members, staff and the public as it relates to Covid-19.
Our first obligation is to ensure our continued focus on safety. Normally, our safety programs center around accident prevention. In this case however, we must widen our view to include the risk of illness.

Richland Electric Cooperative provides electric service to members in Richland County and parts of Crawford, Sauk and Vernon counties. Richland Electric Cooperative also provide Exede by ViaSat satellite Internet service, dial-up Internet service and First Call emergency response telephone service to members and area residents of the greater Richland County area.
We are organized as a cooperative and as such we are not just an ordinary business. We are a business owned by our member-consumers. We provide service to over 3,500 members in and around Richland County, Wisconsin. In order to receive electric service from REC you must be a member of the cooperative. You also have a voice in how our cooperative is operated. You are represented by a Board of Directors that are members of the cooperative. Each year you have the opportunity to vote for your choice of director or, if you desire, run for the position yourself. Director elections are held each year at our Annual Meeting held in March. There are nine directors on the REC Board and three are up for election each year.
