New Member Information

New Member Forms

After application forms are complete you may email them to or mail them to PO Box 435, Orange City, IA 51041.

We want to welcome you as a new member-owner of North West Rural Electric Cooperative. As a new member, we are sending you a “membership certificate”. We look forward to providing reliable electric service for you.

Your rural electric cooperative is a non-profit organization owned by those it serves – you, the member-consumer! It is guided by a board of directors elected by the membership. Because your REC is a cooperative, all margins are allocated to the members as patronage capital, based on the amount of business each member has done with the Cooperative during the year.

This patronage capital is returned to the members in a later year when the board determines that the Cooperative’s financial condition is adequate.

The board of directors, management and employees of North West REC believe that the Cooperative’s members are entitled to safe, reliable and reasonably priced electricity and other needed programs and services that will improve their quality of life.

If you have any questions at any time, don’t hesitate to contact any of our offices. We would also suggest that you read the REC monthly newsletter, which comes inside the “Iowa Electric Cooperative Living” magazine, for more information about your Cooperative.
