We are organized under the 7 COOPERATIVE PRINCIPLES:
Cooperatives are not new and (no matter what country) operate according to the same core principles and values, adopted by the International Co-operative Alliance in 1995. These principles are based on the first modern cooperative founded in Rochdale, England in 1844.
The People Behind IDEAL Energy Cooperative

And with a little initial help, energy marketers can build their internal capabilities that will consistently maximize their fuel margins while minimizing their risks.
