GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - Choptank delivers electricity to parts of all the nine counties on the shore. They have over 6,200 miles of line serving over 51,000 meters.
The company is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. They were incorporated in the fall of 1938 and energized our first meters in Caroline County a short time later. They have been providing reliable, affordable and safe electricity ever since.
The co-op business model is unique: they don't have stockholders or shareholders, the folks they serve or the members, actually own the company. They operate on a cost of service model, but if they do have a margin or profit it is allocated back to the members.
