We were local before local was cool
Consumer cooperatives, like Lynches River Electric Cooperative, have known this forever. We were formed in 1939 by people in this community to serve the people that work, worship and live in this community.

Rhonda Brasington

I’ve got Rivernet now, and I love it. It’s so much better. ... I feel that I’m a member, I’m not a number. I really feel like they care about their co-op members and whatever goes on.
