About REA

America's Electric Cooperatives: Energy is Us

Red River Valley REA (Rural Electric Association) is a co-operative in the business of distributing electricity to homes and commercial entities.  Our owners are the 15,000 members who purchase electric power and related products and services from us.

As a co-operative, we operate on a not-for-profit basis.  But it the co-op finds it has collected more than it needs to run itself, members share the profits (patronage capital).  In 2011, for example, the co-op credited back members' patronage capital accounts more than a nickle of every dollar collected.
Members of the co-op are the only ones eligible to run for the Board of Directors and vote in elections.  
Member Meeting
REA's annual meeting takes place on the 2nd Monday in August at the Marietta Football Field. Registration begins at 6:00 PM and the meeting begins at 8:00 PM.
We provide hot dogs and drinks to all attendees. Prizes are drawn after the business portion of the meeting. 
Occasionally we have an election for an REA board member, depending on whose term has expired and whether anyone registers to run against an incumbent member. 

Our Territory

We are headquartered in Marietta, OK and have a branch office west of Kingston, OK.  

Our territory stretches from Lake Texoma in the East to near Ryan in the West, to the Arbuckle Mountains in the North and to the Red River in the South.  Our 2,700 miles of electric lines course through parts or all of the counties of Carter, Jefferson, Johnston, Love and Marshall.
