Union Rural Electric Cooperative, Inc.
Just to the northwest of Columbus, URE (Union Rural Electric Cooperative, Inc.), based in Marysville, Ohio, is a not-for-profit electric and natural gas distribution cooperative serving just over 10,000 consumer-members. URE, alongside the City of Marysville and Union County, have enjoyed prosperous growth over the last three decades. The communities served by URE are extremely proud of their agricultural heritage, but celebrate the increased investment in the advanced manufacturing and research and development sectors in recent times.
Unlike the typical rural electric cooperative, URE boasts an impressive mix of residential, commercial, and industrial accounts. This mix includes an automotive manufacturing plant and several automotive suppliers, which are not only important to Union County, but to the entire state of Ohio. The cooperative serves a few K-12 school facilities and families with students enrolled in five different school districts. Also included in the member mix are city and county government facilities, several restaurants, automobile dealerships, and retail accounts all contributing to the economic strength of the area.
Commitment to community is a top priority at URE. Each year URE sponsors various activities, such as youth sports, 4-H, farmers markets, local fairs and festivals all designed to boost economic development and improve the quality of life in Union County. The future is bright in and around Union County and URE is positioned to be there powering the way.
