Who We Are
Since 1939, Central Florida Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CFEC) has been proudly serving the Tri-County area. First introduced as Rural Electric Cooperative (REA), CFEC has been providing electrical services to less populated areas, which would not have had affordable and reliable electric utilities otherwise.
At the start of 2018, CFEC had over 35,707 active services in six counties in north central Florida. CFEC currently serves: Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy, and portions of Alachua, Lafayette and Marion Counties.
CFEC is also an active participant in various community events. Each year, CFEC raises funds for organizations such as the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life and the Tri-Counties' Hospice Care Center, and supports programs that directly benefit the people of the communities we serve.
For more information on how the cooperative operates, visit the CFEC bylaws attached below.
