Electricity and energy-related issues are at the forefront of today’s political debates. The legislation and regulations crafted by lawmakers regularly impact electric cooperatives and our Member-owners. Participating in ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action is your opportunity to support state and federal elected leaders and candidates who support electric co-ops.
Addressing some legislative issues requires more resources than Hancock-Wood Electric Cooperative can afford to allocate. During those times, individual cooperatives across the nation rely on the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s (NRECA) Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE).
NRECA established ACRE in 1966 to support state and federal elected leaders and candidates who speak up and protect the interests of electric cooperatives and their member-owners.
ACRE recently expanded its efforts beyond co-op directors and employees to include electric cooperative member-owners with Co-op Owners for Political Action. It’s how the voices of member-owners are heard on Capitol Hill and at the Ohio Statehouse.
