Our Energy, Our Future
The demand for electricity in America is growing at the same time that the concern for global warming is increasing. This has caused a major dilemma for electric cooperatives in meeting member needs for affordable energy.|
And so all of us need to work together to find ways to produce more energy while keeping electric rates affordable and protecting our environment at the same time. All of us need to ask the following questions concerning any federal legislation that may be proposed concerning electricity:
- How will we meet the future demand for electricity?
- How can we develop technology to reduce carbon dioxide emissions?
- How can we help keep electricity affordable?
The answers to these questions are important to every American.
Elected officials need to know that electric cooperatives, and their consumer-owners, stand ready to work with them to develop a plan.
