Iowa's member-owned electric cooperatives take pride in representing the interests of the rural families and businesses they provide electricity to. That's why electric cooperative member-consumers are banding together and leading the way in discussing what needs to be done to ensure they will have the power they need to support future economic growth in their communities.
You can help your electric cooperative in this effort by continuing the discussion with friends, family and elected officials.

The Cooperative Difference
Because rural electric cooperatives are governed by those they serve, they are most aware of the energy and economic development needs within their local communities. This on-the-ground knowledge has enabled electric cooperatives to aid in local economic growth for more than 70 years.
Iowa's electric cooperatives know that affordable electricity is a fundamental aspect of any economic environment that fosters future growth and stability. This is why employees and member-consumers of electric cooperatives are making sure to share their perspectives with policy makers and potential Presidential candidates.
With Iowa's population shifting to urban and suburban areas, it is more important than ever that the voices of rural Iowa remain strong and vigilant. Policymakers must understand how proposed energy policies will uniquely affect the future economic well-being of Iowa's rural economies.
