New Member Information

Welcome to Duck River Electric Membership Corporation!

Duck River Electric Membership Corporation, formed in 1936, is an electric cooperative owned by the members we serve across an area of approximately 2,500 square miles. The cooperative’s headquarters office is located in Shelbyville with branch offices in Manchester, Decherd, Sewanee, Lewisburg, Chapel Hill, Columbia, and Lynchburg.

DREMC exists today to distribute quality electricity at the lowest possible cost, promote and facilitate economic development, and enhance the quality of life for the members. Our electric cooperative’s values center around providing reliable electricity to all members and making sure that the programs and services we offer are convenient and affordable. We are committed to the communities we serve. It is the cooperative business model that separates us from other utility providers and makes the cooperative difference!

We currently purchase power from the Tennessee Valley Authority and supply more than 83,000 members with virtually trouble-free electric service. DREMC employees do what it takes to make sure you have electric service 24/7/365.

I encourage you to acquaint yourself with the many services, policies, and procedures necessary to make your electric cooperative one of the best around. Each day we strive to meet your electrical service needs in one of the fastest-growing areas in Tennessee.

On behalf of the DREMC employees and board directors, I welcome you to the area and to your cooperative!
