Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative is a member owned non-profit electric distribution cooperative that has served customers on Hatteras Island for over 60 years. Prior to 1945, the only electric service found on Hatteras Island was in Hatteras Village. The sparsely populated, remote island was not considered a profitable venture by investor-owned utilities. Consequently, the founders and first members of Cape Hatteras Electric Cooperative literally took matters into their own hands and formed their own power company.
Today, our cooperative has grown to serve over 7,000 accounts. Our on-going policy is to support our members and their interests as they strive to enrich the quality of life for those who live and own property on Hatteras Island. Our top priority is to meet the unique needs and challenges of Hatteras Island.
CHEC is located in Buxton, North Carolina at 47109 Light Plant Road. Office hours are 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.
