A Responsive Cooperative Equipped for Serious Needs
Why work with GVEC? A Cooperative is Different.
GVEC is a cooperative, which means we are owned and governed by the members we serve. We are a not-for-profit organization concerned only with reliably and affordably meeting the needs of our consumers. You’ll be meeting with the decision makers up front as we strive to make the process of establishing operations in our service area convenient and streamlined. In addition, when our revenues exceed expenses and the Board of Directors deems appropriate, you’ll receive capital credits back, a benefit recognized only by being part of a member-owned cooperative.
Another very unique aspect of the Cooperative business model is our belief in supporting our member communities. Your company is valuable in terms of providing jobs, revenue stream, and resources to strengthen to this region. Working on behalf of our members and neighbors, we will help connect you to the professionals and prospects that make the Guadalupe Valley the best place to call home.

Traditional Values, Unexpected Service.
At 75 years young, GVEC has continued to grow since its 1938 incorporation by a group of farmers who brought rural electricity to their community to improve their lives.
When the lights first went on, GVEC served 150 members. Today, the member owned cooperative serves more than 75,000 consumers in a 13-county area spanning 3,500 square miles. As part of a larger mission to identify and invest in services to meet our members evolving needs, we also go beyond electricity serving as a prominent South Central Texas high-speed Internet Service Provider and supplier of energy efficient appliance, air conditioning and heating, and solar sales and service.
Our record speaks for itself. Through advanced technology, a strong electric system, progressive thinking and good people who care, GVEC is positioned well to support your needs now and for generations to come.

With features such as prime South Central Texas commercial real estate, an equipped workforce, and a strong manufacturing and industrial profile among other industries, we want to help you experience the Guadalupe Valley for all its worth.
