Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative was chartered March 11, 1938, by a group of Mecklenburg County residents. The first office was located in Boydton, Virginia. The group's stated purpose was: "To advance the position of agriculture, to enrich the life of the community, to free men and women from the heavy drudgery of the home and farm, this electric system was erected by the farmers and their neighbors to whom it supplies the limitless service of electricity." In 1939, the Headquarters office was moved to Chase City. Soon the service area extended from Pittsylvania County, east, to Sussex County. Later District offices were added in Emporia, Gretna, and Chase City.
