The Our Energy Our Future national grassroots campaign was launched by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) to engage consumer/members in conversations with elected officials. This dialogue is to include discussions on meeting climate change goals while keeping electricity reliable and affordable. Cooperative members have been asked to write letters, fill out counter comment cards at their local electric cooperative offices, and go online to send an email to initiate this dialogue with Congress.
Some of the questions being raised include key issues regarding capacity and fuel supply, climate change, technology, and affordability. A growing need for electricity continues, how will the future needs be met; technology, research and development is needed and is costly, what is being done in Congress to assist in funding this research to meet the nation’s climate policy goals; and how can the affordability of electricity be maintained and sustain a balance with the electricity needs and the environmental goals of the nation.
These questions are important for the cooperative membership as well as employees of an electric cooperative. Please follow this link http://www.ourenergy.coop/ to contact your elected officials on this very important issue.
