Who We Are
Medina Electric Cooperative, Inc., a not-for-profit electric cooperative, was formed in 1938 under the provisions of the United States Rural Electrification Act and incorporated under the provisions of the Texas Electric Cooperative Corporation Act. Like other co-ops, we operate under seven guiding cooperative principles and were born out of the need for electricity in South Texas. The cooperative is an equal opportunity provider.

The lines and facilities have been constructed with funds obtained by loan agreements from the Rural Utilities Service (formerly Rural Electrification Administration or REA), a division within the United States Department of Agriculture, the National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation (CFC) and CoBank.
