Why We Are Involved
The biggest influence on our lawmakers is the concerns expressed by their own voters. You play an important role in this process. If we don’t tell them about our issues and concerns – they won’t know we care.
Pella Cooperative Electric's future will be directly related to your active participation in the political process. There is a great deal of power behind grassroots activities and how they can influence the outcome of legislation, political and community decisions. We are involved to get the best outcome for Iowa’s rural electric cooperatives (RECs) and YOU, our members.
We're Looking Out For You!
- Working together to keep your electric bills affordable
- Controlling costs through innovation
- Continuing to put you our members first.
Pella Cooperative Electric participates in several legislative events throughout the year. It aligns with one of our governing principles (#5): Education, Training, and Information. Cooperatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their cooperative. For more information on events we actively participate in please click here.
The messages delivered to our legislators are in the best interest of our membership. We ask for support of bills that will keep rural electricity affordable, safe and reliable and we ask for you to stand with us when legislation threatens our cooperative principles.
