Abstract:
There are over one hundred separately organized electric utilities that serve customers in North Carolina. Depending on the location of an individual's home or place of employment, electric service could be provided from a consumer-owned cooperative, an investor-owner utility, a city government, or some other utility operating in the state. Each type of service covers a designated area.

Abstract:
As a city's borders spread outward and housing development follows, the city's electric power system often encroaches into areas long served by electric cooperatives. When two power providers each serve an area, all consumers pay for unnecessary power lines. Electric service in the state is governed by Senate Bill 512, known as the Territory Law, which was passed in 1965. The NC General Assembly recently modernized the law. The updated law creates more efficiency in planning for growth and a new framework for determining which utility will serve a growing area.
