Greenbelt Electric Cooperative distributes electricity to 7 West Texas counties. With only 5,500 customers, GEC is one of the smaller electric co-ops in Texas. They do not generate any of the electrify they provide, as is the case with most Texas electric company cooperatives. Due to its small customer base, its location and the fact that they resell electricity, their customers pay a higher electricity rate than most other consumers in the state.
