Central Virginia Electric Cooperative

0 Reviews
About us In 1937 only about 10% of Central Virginia's citizens in rural areas had electric service. In order to meet the need for rural access to electricity, a group of citizens in the Rockfish Valley area of Nelson County decided to explore the possibilities of forming an electric cooperative. They borrowed funds from the newly established Rural Electrification Administration (REA) to construct their own electric service system. Strong interest and rapid growth resulted in the formation of a county-wide organization. The application for a cooperative charter was executed at a well-attended meeting on September 20, 1937, at Lovingston High School. L.C. Dawson, S.T. Rodes, G.H. Whitehead, James Sites, F.R. Moon, and Fred Schilling were early proponents of the effort, and their leadership was rewarded when the State Corporation Commission granted the charter on September 22, 1937. Central Virginia Electric Cooperative was formed.
