There is an old adage in politics: “when elected officials feel the heat, they see the light.” Joining Coos-Curry Electric’s grassroots network will give Oregon’s electric cooperatives a stronger voice in making sure all our elected officials see the light. Proposals that could affect the supply and price of your electricity are being considered and debated by the Oregon Legislature, the U.S. Congress and federal and state agencies. It’s more important than ever to band together and promote common sense solutions to our energy future. The stakes have never been higher.
Joining is easy. Simply go to www.ccec.coop and click on the ORECA logo shown below. Follow the instructions to register. Or you can stop by Coos-Curry Electric’s office and fill out a simple card that enrolls you in this important program. By signing up for ORECA-Action, you’ll maximize your voice and become part of a growing team of electric cooperative advocates in the state of Oregon. Not only will you receive timely, informative updates on keys issues that affect your electric bill, you’ll occasionally be called upon to hold elected officials accountable on legislation that affects our ability to deliver you affordable, reliable electricity.
Your electric cooperative has a proud, proven record of delivering clean, renewable, reliable and affordable electricity to the members they serve. Yet, each legislative session subjects electric cooperatives and electric consumers to mandates or other proposals that threaten to add to the cost of the electricity you use in your daily lives. You are not powerless. It’s amazing how an organized group of citizens can impact the legislative process simply by banding together in a collective voice. Please join thousands of other Oregonian electric co-op members who are already part of this vital program by signing up at www.ccec.coop or ORECA-Action.org. Or, just come by our office and tell us you want to be part of our grassroots team. We’ll make you a deal. We’ll provide the light if you help elected officials see the light on important legislation.
Call any of our offices for more information or if you have questions. Thank you for considering being part of Coos-Curry Electric’s grassroots advocacy team. Together, we can make a difference.
