In the United States, utility companies either provide electric, natural gas, or water service to customers. The companies are either for-profit companies, some of which are large public corporations, or public utility companies owned by a city or community. In large rural areas of the United States, rural cooperatives provide the same service as utility companies in cities. The primary difference between a cooperative and other forms of companies is that a cooperative is owned by its members, who are the customers. The customers then have more of a voice when it comes to decision-making.
