Back in 1937, your neighborhood was rural. No subdivisions, shopping malls or interstates—just farmland and country roads. The large, investor-owned utilities decided against expanding to your area because it wasn't profitable. So a group of residents formed Denton County Electric Cooperative, which later became known as CoServ, distributing electricity and, starting in 1998, gas. Here is an overview of the past:
