About Us

Since 1938, United Cooperative Services has provided reliable, affordable power to the rural homes and businesses of North Texas. Headquartered in Cleburne, Texas, United is an electric distribution cooperative serving more than 82,000 meters and more than 58,000 members. 

United plays a key role in the economic development of its communities and unlike a private utility, the cooperative is a not-for-profit business owned by the consumers it serves. Formed for a consolidation of Johnson County Electric Cooperative and Erath County Electric Cooperative in April 2000, United has combined greater buying power with a more efficient, economic operation.

As a member of Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives, a branding initiative and national alliance of local, consumer-owned electric cooperatives, United plays a key role in the economic development of its communities.

Maintaining more than 10,500 miles of energized line, United serves all or parts of Johnson, Erath, Hood, Bosque, Somervell, Palo Pinto, Coryell, Eastland, Comanche, Stephens, Young, Hamilton, Tarrant and Ellis counties.

United Cooperative Services is one of more than 60 electric distribution cooperatives in Texas and one of more than 900 electric cooperatives across the country. Coming years will see more growth and more changes, but United’s commitment to reasonable rates, reliable power and superior service for its member-owners will never change. That’s more than a promise; that’s a pledge of priority. And at United, we keep our priorities straight.
