Guadalupe Valley Electric Cooperative (GVEC) Provides More than Utilities
Wednesday, November 01, 2023
GVEC began as a small grassroots initiative turning the lights on for 150 members in 1938 when most rural America still lacked electrical power. GVEC went on to be a key contributor to the manufacturing mecca in south central Texas, providing site selection services and support to an array of commercial and industrial-based customers in the region.
Today, the GVEC Service Area Spans 3,500 Square Miles
This member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative serves over 120,000 consumers in communities across 13 counties in south-central Texas daily, and is essential to the ongoing Economic Development of the Guadalupe Valley. Through technological advancements, well-maintained systems, and progressive planning, GVEC strives to keep the region comfortable and commercially viable at a level that exceeds its members’ expectations.
“GVEC has a long history of being very involved in all the communities we live and work in,” says GVEC Economic Development Director Daisy Scheske Freeman. “Every member GVEC serves has a voice, which is one reason we’re very different from typical large utilities.”
