Cooperatives like ours operate differently than most businesses. We are a consumer-owned business, which means that you and your neighbors actually own your electric utility. You're a member, not a customer. And as your cooperative, we strive to deliver safe, affordable and reliable electricity.
Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative serves over 12,000 members in portions of Augusta, Barry Lakes, Frankford Township, Hardyston, Highland Lakes, Lafayette, Vernon and Wantage, all in Sussex County, NJ and a small portion of Orange County, NY. Cooperatives have their roots in their local communities and the employees at Sussex Rural Electric Cooperative are no different. We are proud to live in the communities we serve, to support our hometown businesses and share the values of rural New Jersey.
