Our Energy, Our Future
Productive dialogue begins by asking tough questions and requiring straight answers. Join the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have contacted their elected officials about our nation’s energy and climate change policies.

Today’s climate change debate is centered primarily on the environment. Electric cooperatives believe Congress is not considering the impact various proposals will have on the availability, reliability and affordability of electricity.

Because of how the proposals will affect electric utilities, the cost of climate change legislation will result in significantly higher electric bills for customers.

While some may dismiss South Central Power’s urgency, we have a responsibility to alert you, our member-owners, to legislation that could harm your access to reliable electricity and your ability to afford it.

We encourage you to contact your Congressional representatives by visiting www.ourenergy.coop. It allows you to send your legislators pre-written emails that address current legislative issues of importance to electric cooperatives.
