Access Energy Cooperative is active on the political scene to make sure the cooperative’s interests are conveyed to legislators on the federal, state and local level.
The staff and board of directors maintain relationships with our local legislators. We visit with them frequently to make sure they understand the cooperative business model. Rest assured that local legislators are working on your behalf.
In March, electric cooperatives throughout the state converge on the capital to have REC on the Hill. The cooperatives take over the rotunda to set up displays for the legislators. The displays range from safety to energy efficiency. Our goal is to make sure they can make a very informed decision on issues regarding the cooperative. We also make personal visits with the legislators that day to talk about issues that may have effect on your cooperative and the utility industry.
We thank our legislators for taking time out of their busy day to meet with us.
