Co-ops launch non-partisan voter engagement program
America’s electric cooperatives have launched a non-partisan, nationwide effort to promote civic engagement and voter participation in the communities they serve.
Jeffrey Connor, interim CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, unveiled the Co-ops Vote program at the association’s 74th annual meeting in New Orleans.
IOWA’S TOUCHSTONE ENERGY COOPERATIVES sponsored the annual “Momentum Is Building” conference Feb. 11-12 at the Sheraton West Des Moines hotel.
Momentum Is Building offers up-to-date building science information, practical hands-on information and new technology displays for building trades professionals – including homebuilders, electricians, and heating-plumbing contractors. Rural electric cooperative personnel from across the state also attended.

Co-op Rural Power is a grassroots campaign run by member-consumers of America’s electric cooperatives. Throughout the 2016 campaign, Co-op Rural Power advocates have interacted with every presidential candidate and asked them this simple question: “WHAT IS YOUR PLAN TO ENSURE, SAFE, AFFORDABLE, RELIABLE AND ENVIRONMENTALLY-RESPONSIBLE ELECTRICITY?”

On behalf of participating cooperatives, the Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives (IAEC) filed the results of the electric cooperatives’ energy efficiency programs for the years 2013 and 2014 with the Iowa Utilities Board and the Iowa Attorney General’s Office of Consumer Advocate earlier this week. This filing represented the completion of the electric cooperatives’ first 5-year energy efficiency plan. In the years 2010-2014, Iowa’s not-for-profit electric co-ops invested approximately $76.7 million (over $15 million annually) in energy efficiency programs.
