If you are a Benton REA member, then you are also an owner of the electric cooperative and we welcome you to your web site.
As an electric cooperative, Benton REA operates on a not-for-profit basis and each member has a vote in how we do business.
There are more than 75 million people in the United States of America who are members of cooperatives. Cooperatives encourage people to help themselves by following seven cooperative principles. It’s the way we have been serving our members since 1937. It’s The Cooperative Way!
Below is a short video produced by National Rural Electric Cooperative Association to explain more about what makes electric cooperatives unique.
