The article is part of the publication’s Down Home series, which looks at the changing communities that make up the association’s service area.

Although most of Suffolk is served by Dominion Virginia Power, a handful of residents – mostly in the rural southwestern pocket of the city – is served by the Windsor-based Community Electric Cooperative.

According to its web site, that cooperative serves 9,900 residential and commercial accounts in parts of Suffolk, Isle of Wight, Southampton, Sussex and Surry counties.

The &uot;Cooperative Living&uot; article was written by News-Herald reporter Allison T. Williams. The accompanying photographs were shot by photographer Eric. P. Brooks.
