Statewide’s vision is an indispensable network of member cooperatives that enriches the lives of their consumers and the communities in which they live.
The North Dakota Association of Rural Electric Cooperatives (NDAREC) is the trade association for North Dakota's 16 distribution co-ops and five generation and transmission co-ops. It was incorporated in 1958. NDAREC's headquarters is in Mandan, N.D.
Today, NDAREC (commonly referred to as Statewide) works with the state's network of electric cooperatives to provide a complete package of quality services in communications, government relations, safety training, professional development and economic development.
Membership in the association is voluntary. It is offered to any electric cooperative that operates electrical generating plants or transmission and distribution systems in the state of North Dakota. Affiliate memberships are also available.
