It´s coming to Electricity For You.

The purpose of Rural Electrification Administration is to provide power to rural areas.

REA Effective since 1936


Michael Jones


Rural Electrification Administration provides power to areaś such as farms or ranches. This job has been effective since 1936. This was one of the agencies created under the new deal to promote rural electrification. This job is still around today to provide electricity.The advent of the electric industry in the 1880s ushered forward a rapidly expanding domestic market in the United States. The physical scale of the electric utility industry mirrored the national economy that sprung up with it — massive power generation facilities, substantial capital investments for network construction, high maintenance costs, and production technologies that were obtrusive and degrading to the natural environment. But the adaptation of electricity to manufacturing and services further liberated firms from having to locate in proximity to moving water, and with rising immigration from liberal naturalization policies accelerated the pace of economic growth.

Part 2: The R.E.A., originally created by executive order in 1935, was authorized as a federal agency within the United States Department of Agriculture (U.S.D.A.) when Congress passed and President Roosevelt signed the Rural Electrification Act of 1936. After 1949, the R.E.A. was authorized to finance the formation of telephone cooperatives, through low-interest federal loans, to extend telephone service to underserved rural areas. Repeatedly extending the original authorization of a ten-year program of subsidies, the federal government actively promoted rural electrification through the R.E.A. until the end of the twentieth century. In 1994, Congress established the Rural Utilities Service (R.U.S.) as a federal agency within the U.S.D.A., and it absorbed the R.E.A. and its responsibilities for rural electrification and telephone service.
