Welcome to the Rural Electricity Resource Council site!  RERC is a national association of electric companies, cooperatives, public power districts and allied groups.  Helping our members serve their rural customers is our primary goal.

We also have materials available for consumers and classroom teachers on energy efficiency, standby generators, electrical wiring, safety and other topics. Select “Our Products” above, then follow “Nonmember Shopping” to view each of these items. You can learn about each one, then purchase items on-line if you wish, using Visa or Master Card.

As a national center for knowledge on rural electricity topics, we want to assist you. General topics are discussed under the “Energy Use, Electrical Wiring and Safety” tab above. More specific information for rural power suppliers is provided through our member newsletter Electric Solutions and at our national conference each year. Visit the “About Us” tab for an explanation of what we do, and our 60-year history of helping electric power suppliers serve their rural consumer.

Generator Safety Video                                                           

Improperly connecting a standby generator into a building's electrical system carries lethal consequences.  Public education is essential for everyone's safety.

Order the five-minute video "Avoid Deadly Hazards, Use Generators Safely" as a clear and visual way to explain safe connections and procedures.  In particular, it describes how electricity can travel backwards through a home's electrical system and endanger others  unless proper switch gear is used.

  Developed jointly by the Energy Education Council and the Rural Electricity Resource Council, this five-minute program captures the essential education points and explains them in a way that consumers understand.

To learn more and order on-line, click the "Our Products" menu tab above.  Then go to the Electrical Wiring section.
