For over 30 years, the Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE) has been working to support candidates for the US Senate and House of Representatives that understand and advocate on behalf of the value of electric cooperatives and their consumer owners.Now through a special program – Co-op Owners for Political Action – you, as a consumer-owner, have the ability to help strengthen this support and join the over 23,000 members of ACRE.
The timing of this program could not be more critical. You don’t have to look past the morning headlines to see that the energy debate is one of the nation’s most volatile. We need your help to shape this debate in favor of electric cooperatives and their consumer-owners.It does not take a lot of time or money to be a cooperative advocate. Through the Co-op Owners for Political Action we have made it easy for you to make a small monthly donation along with your electric bill and we hope that you will consider participation in this program. Together we will continue to fight for a viable environment for electric cooperatives and the quality of life they bring to your community. Visit the Congressional Action Center and send an email to your representative and Senators.
What does ACRE do?
Rural electric system employees and consumers need representative in Congress who understand the important issues affecting rural electric co-ops and who will fight for rural electric consumers. ACRE was organized to support only the political candidates – those in Congress now and running for Congress – who will speak for and protect the interests of rural electric consumers and their cooperative electric systems.
What is Co-op Owners for Political Action?
It’s an exciting new program that allows residential electric cooperative members (consumer-owners) to strengthen their voice in the political process.
