About Us

Rio Grande Electric Cooperative, Inc. (RGEC) was organized in 1945 to enhance the quality of life for rural residents by providing electric service where none existed. Today, at over 35,000 sq. miles, RGEC has the largest service territory of any electric cooperative in the contiguous United States, serving 18 counties in Texas, and 2 counties in New Mexico. While it still serves rural areas, many metropolitan areas have expanded into RGEC's territory, which now includes hospitals, schools, and urban housing developments. The Cooperative was also selected by the military to be the electrical maintenance provider for Ft. Bliss, El Paso, and Laughlin AFB, Del Rio.

The headquarters offices are located in Brackettville, Texas, and RGEC maintains additional offices in Alpine, Carrizo Springs, Dell City, El Paso, and Fort Stockton. The service territory includes portions of Brewster, Crockett, Culberson, Dimmit, Edwards, El Paso, Hudspeth, Jeff Davis, Kinney, Maverick, Pecos, Presidio, Reeves, Terrell, Uvalde, Val Verde, Webb and Zavala in Texas, and Eddy and Otero counties in New Mexico.
