Our Story

Mission Statement

To provide outstanding service that powers our rural communities.

Surry-Yadkin Electric Membership Corporation was founded in 1940 by a group of local farmers. These visionaries were committed to providing electricity to rural farmers and families, and they were committed to the effort for a good reason. Four years after President Roosevelt signed the Rural Electrification Act, they watched electricity left many families out of poverty. It created demand for new jobs and products, and enabled farmers to make efficiency upgrades that resulted in crops being produced and sold more quickly.
