Making Washington Work for You

Electric cooperatives are deeply connected to the communities they serve and are focused on meeting members’ energy needs today and into the future. Providing our consumer-members with safe, reliable and affordable power will always be our highest priority, but that requires much more than simply maintaining power lines and other infrastructure.

It requires us to focus on what our elected leaders are doing in Washington, D.C., to ensure they are acting in your best interest. Here are some of the things we’re keeping an eye on in the nation’s capital.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Cooperatives work continually to improve members’ quality of life.

Dramatic changes are transforming all aspects of the energy industry. Interest in renewable energy is at an all-time high, and consumers want greater control over their energy use and payment methods. The prevalence of smartphone apps and smart home technology is increasing, and consumers and businesses are showing greater interest in electric vehicles. There’s no denying that electric utilities will have to make changes to the way they provide energy to accommodate these trends and evolving preferences.
