A Responsive Cooperative In a Vibrant Region

About the Region.

The GVEC Region spans a 3,500 square-mile area over 13 counties in South Central Texas. We are located in proximity to San Antonio and Austin; two of the fastest growing cities in the Nation. Major highway arteries, Interstate 10 and Interstate 35 provide access North, South, East and West.

Guadalupe and Comal counties, in our western territory, have established themselves as a manufacturing hub attracting Fortune 500 companies such as Caterpillar, Amazon, Sysco, Niagara Bottling Company and others in recent years.

Gonzales and Lavaca counties in our eastern territory are home to a cluster of food-related industries including Adams Extract, Kitchen Pride Mushroom Farm, Holmes Food, Tyson, Calmaine, J Bar B Foods, Eddy Packing, and NestFresh Eggs among others.

Why work with GVEC? A Cooperative is Different.

GVEC is a cooperative, 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.

Another 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.

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 85,000 consumers. We go beyond electricity, serving as a prominent South Central Texas high-speed Internet Service Provider and supplier of air conditioning and heating and solar sales and service, as well as electrician services.

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.
