The Oregon Electric Cooperative Association represents the 18 electric cooperatives serving rural areas in Oregon. Electric cooperatives are consumer-owned, not-for-profit utilities governed by member elected boards of directors. Cooperatives serve over 10 percent of Oregon’s electricity consumers, are located in 32 counties and maintain 26,000 miles of line traversing Oregon’s most rugged terrain.
For nearly 8 decades, Oregon’s rural electric cooperatives have delivered clean, renewable, reliable and affordable electricity to their members. It is a record of which they are extremely proud. Yet, each legislative session, Oregon cooperatives are subjected to mandates or other proposals that make it even more challenging to deliver the electricity you need in your daily lives – when you need it and at a price you can afford.
We are not powerless. It’s amazing how an organized group of citizens can impact the political process simply by banding together in a collective voice. Please join thousands of other Oregonian electric cooperative members who are already part of this vital program. By joining, you’ll maximize your voice and become part of a growing team of electric cooperative advocates in the state of Oregon. Together, we can make a difference.
