First Electric Cooperative is a non-profit rural electric utility cooperative headquartered in Jacksonville, Arkansas, with district offices in Benton, Heber Springs, Perryville, and Stuttgart, Arkansas.

The Cooperative was organized in April, 1937 and the first power lines were energized in April 1938 to 150 members. Its name comes from the fact that it was the first rural electric cooperative organized in Arkansas.
