Welcome! The Alabama Rural Electric Association of Cooperatives (AREA) is a member-owned federation of 22 electric distribution cooperatives.

Associate Members

Who should become an Associate Member of AREA?

Vendors of goods and services that our cooperatives use are invited to become associate members of AREA. Being an associate member gives businesses that have products and services that are relevant to cooperatives an opportunity to meet, work with, sponsor, or provide information and training to AREA member systems.
