In addition to electric service, electric co-ops are deeply involved in their communities promoting development and revitalization projects, small businesses, job creation, improvement of water and sewer systems and assistance in delivery of health care and educational services. The number of cooperatives, 840 distribution systems and 65 G&Ts, includes a small number of rural public power districts that are considered part of the rural electric network.
Member-owned electric cooperatives have nearly 240 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity online or on the drawing board across the country.
Electric cooperatives serve in 327 of the nation's 353 "persistent poverty counties" (93%). The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) Act in 1933, and the establishment of the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) in 1935 changed that.

Most rural electrification is the product of locally owned rural electric cooperatives that got their start by borrowing funds from the REA to build lines and provide service on a not-for-profit basis.

Electric cooperatives across the country are actively expanding their fuel portfolios to include an array of renewable sources, including wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, manure and hydro. Cooperatives have 10 percent of retail electricity sales but are responsible for 20 percent of actual peak reduction (Energy Information Administration).

The nation’s 66 G &Ts are primarily engaged in marketing, generating, or transmitting wholesale electricity.
Some G&Ts, such as Basin Electric Power Cooperative and Associated Electric Cooperative, Inc., serve other G&Ts as well distribution cooperatives.
