Members of Ruralite Services

Leadership


Ruralite Services provides more than 70 electric cooperatives, people’s utility districts and municipalities with high-quality communication resources and services tailored to meet their needs. Members stretch across nine states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington.

As a member-led communications cooperative, Ruralite Services has been powering efficient communications since 1954.

In true cooperative fashion, our members lead us through our Board of Directors and Communications Committee.
