Addressing some legislative issues requires more resources than South Central Power has. At those times, individual cooperatives rely on the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s (NRECA) Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE).

NRECA established ACRE in 1966 to support state and federal officeholders and candidates who speak up and protect the interests of electric cooperatives and their member-owners.

ACRE recently expanded its efforts beyond co-op directors and employees to include electric cooperative member-owners with Co-op Owners for Political Action. It’s how the voices of member-owners are heard on Capitol Hill and at the Ohio Statehouse.
