ACRE stands up for members in Washington, D.C.

August 5, 2022

Energy-related issues are at the forefront of today’s policy debates. Federal and state officials who make decisions don’t always see you or know your story, but if you’re a contributing member of ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action, they’ll hear your voice and be more likely to make decisions on your behalf.

“There is so much discussion going on about energy that we can’t sit on the sidelines and just watch that debate happening — we have to be involved,” says Marc Armstrong, director of government affairs at Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives.

For almost 50 years, the Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE) has been working to support members of and candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives who understand and support electric cooperatives and consumer-members like you. Co-op Owners is the special electric co-op members-only arm of ACRE that gives you the ability to speak up and help elect state and federal government officials who will:

• Keep your energy bills affordable and your energy reliable
• Protect our economy and jobs when making legislation
• Make renewable energy more affordable for you
