Yazoo Valley Electric Power Association

Welcome to our website. Yazoo Valley Electric is a rural electric power association serving parts of six counties in Mississippi. We are dedicated to providing safe, reliable electric power to the members who own the system we build and maintain.

Our History

Yazoo Valley Electric has deep roots in the communities we serve. Our association was founded in 1937.

During that time there were plenty of people who doubted there was any realistic chance of electric cooperatives succeeding. After all, how were people living way out in the country going to afford electricity? And what were they going to do with it if they got it?

Fortunately, the number of people determined to make it work outnumbered those looking for excuses not to try, and rural Mississippi took a huge step forward as the electric cooperative concept began to become a reality across the state.

Yazoo Valley’s first office was established in 1938. It was located at 239 S. Main Street in the building where Ferguson Furniture is located today. At the time the Bank of Yazoo City and Wise Brothers were directly across the street. It remained there until May of 1953.

The Tradition Continues

Our current employees are proud to carry on the traditions established by those who came before them. Yazoo Valley Electric takes pride in being “Strong on Service,” and we are dedicated to providing reliable power to all of our members.

Today our office is located at 2255 Gordon Avenue in Yazoo City right next to the Willie Morris Parkway. You can reach us at 662-746-4251. Please report power outages by calling 662-746-4251 or 1-866-484-4277.
