The NREA collaborates with national and regional affiliates and provides a forum within which Nevada’s rural utilities communicate and work together to achieve mutually beneficial goals. Our purpose is to power communities with safe, reliable and affordable electricity, and empower consumers to improve the quality of their lives.
All of the NREA’s member utilities are governed by locally, democratically elected Board of Directors that set the strategic direction for their own utilities. These boards are the foundation, strength and point of differentiation of the NREA’s not-for-profit members. The NREA advocates for consumers with national and state legislators, agencies, local governments and like-minded associations about the importance of the services our utility members provide.
