7 Cooperative Principles
The 7 Cooperative Principles are a core set of guidelines that coops worldwide operate by. These principles have roots that date back to 1844, with the most updated version being in 1966. Cooperatives are not exclusive to electric utilities, many different industries have coops such as agriculture, bakers, food, finance, home improvement and healthcare. Read more about these principles on our page 7 Cooperative Principles.
