Home > About Us

Since 1939, TruEnergy Federal Credit Union (Formerly Washington Gas Light Federal Credit Union) has been a not-for-profit, member-owned financial cooperative. Every member owns an equal share of the credit union, allowing us to offer lower loan rates and higher dividend yields.

We’re proud to offer financial products and services for every step of the way. From your child’s first savings account to financing their first car to major purchases such as a boat or home, we are dedicated to empowering our members to lead more prosperous lives while becoming financially savvy.

Our History

In 1939, a group of employees from within Washington Gas Light Company came together to assist various colleagues in making large purchases, receiving their charter as a credit union that year. This small group of employees could not have known that they established a partnership that would grow to serve thousands of members empowering them to achieve their personal and financial goals.
