About Jo-Carroll Energy

Jo-Carroll Energy is dedicated to providing members with safe and reliable electric, natural gas and high-performance Internet service at the lowest practical price. As a cooperative, we are proud to be member-owned and controlled.

Your cooperative had its start as an electric cooperative, one of many establised by rural pioneers all cross the country in the 1930s and early 1940s. Organized as a nonprofit corporation in 1939, Jo-Carroll Energy's first 20 miles of electric lines were energized on May 3, 1940, bringing service to 60 members.
