Located in Franklin, Indiana, JCREMC is a cooperative electric utility that supplies electric service to more than 26,000 meters in Johnson County and portions of Morgan, Shelby, and Brown counties.
As a cooperative enterprise, we are a unique organization. The people who receive their electricity from us are more than just customers, they are members. As owners of the cooperative, members are entitled to the benefits that cooperatives offer, such as our non-profit business structure, local control and decision-making, strength in numbers, and a democratically elected board of directors who are also members.
In the 1930s, investor-owned utilities were not interested in serving rural areas because they felt it wouldn’t be profitable. But the leaders of the agricultural communities of rural America knew that electricity was vital to the progress of our country. With federal funding available through the newly created Rural Electrification Administration (REA), cooperatives began springing up across America.
The founding fathers of the electric cooperative movement had strong ties to Indiana. One of the first electric cooperatives to serve a rural area in America is located right here in our state.
Founded in 1935, JCREMC began operations with 1,129 members. Today we serve over 21,000 members with over 1,650 miles of distribution line.
As a member of this cooperative, you have the right and responsibility to attend the annual meeting each year where the business of the corporation is detailed and discussed. Your membership also means that you have the right to vote and elect fellow members to the cooperative’s board of directors at the annual meeting.
You also have the responsibility to protect REMC property and advise the office about any damage to cooperative property or dangerous conditions you may observe.
