Help Protect the Cooperative Form of Business!

Maintaining a strong grassroots presence in the political process is key to the long-term success of electric cooperatives nationwide.

COPA stands for Co-op Owners for Political Action and is the mechanism by which you can give your support to members of Congress who speak for electric cooperatives and who protect the interests of our members.

ACRE stands for Action Committee for Rural Electrification. It is the Political Action Committee (PAC) for the nation’s electric cooperatives. ACRE supports congressional candidates, regardless of political party affiliation, who share public policy goals that are consistent with the mission of members-owned electric cooperatives. More than 34,000 cooperative members across the U.S. are participating in the ACRE/COPA program. You too can be part of the cooperative grassroots effort that keeps the electric cooperatives and their mission in front of our legislators.

Members who would like to keep the voice of rural electric cooperatives heard in the political process can sign up for ACRE/COPA.


Speak Up for Your Electric Cooperative

The electric cooperative business model seems to be threatened on a regular basis by federal budget cut concerns or Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. Speak up for your electric cooperative so you and your family can continue to enjoy the benefits of being a cooperative member, such as capital credits checks and local customer service.

Voices for Cooperative Power


Legislative Contacts

In addition to signing up for ACRE, you can do more by letting your Congressional representatives know your opinion about legislation that affects your electric rates.
