elected officials and policy makers at the state and
federal levels. It's free to our members, and you are never under any
obligation. To sign up, fill in the information
requested and we'll add you to the ever-growing list of

Power for the Northwest Cooperative Members!
Do you live in the Pacific Northwest?
Do you get your electricity
from a consumer-owned
utility, such as a mutual, cooperative, people's/public
utility district or municipal? Are you concerned about your
cost of power? Then you should join People Power, the grass
roots organization for the Pacific Northwest whose mission
is to educate and encourage grassroots contact by customers
of Northwest consumer-owned utilities with Congress, federal
and regional agencies about issues impacting electric rates.

Take Action Network
Your National Grass Roots Organization!
Take Action Network allows you to make your voice heard in the halls of the
U.S. Congress and in Washington State Legislature. Not
only is it your right to tell your legislators what you
think about proposed legislation, it is also your duty!
Communication is a major component of advocating what is
in the best interest of you and the other members of
your cooperative. Sending your member of Congress or the
Legislature an email on an important issue affecting
your cooperative is a great way to keep your senators
and representatives informed. The
Take Action Network,
sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative
Association, is a website where you can do that quickly.
You simply log in, and write your message. The
Take Action Network
takes care of making sure your message is forwarded to
the appropriate senators and your representative.
So visit the
Take Action Network -
learn about the issues pending before Congress that
directly affect your electric cooperative. Then,
let your voice be heard!
