sign up for ORECA Action Network

Joining is easy. Simply go to www.ORECA-Action.org and follow the instructions to register. Or you can stop by UEC’s Hermiston or Boardman offices and fill out a simple card that enrolls you in this important program.

By signing up for ORECA-Action, you’ll maximize your voice and become part of a growing team of electric cooperative advocates in the state of Oregon.

Not only will you receive timely, informative updates on keys issues that affect your electric bill, you’ll occasionally be called upon to hold elected officials accountable on legislation that affects our ability to deliver you affordable, reliable electricity.

The Oregon Rural Electric Cooperative Association represents the 18 electric cooperatives serving rural areas in Oregon. Electric cooperatives are consumer-owned, not-for-profit utilities governed by member-elected boards of directors. Cooperatives serve more than 10 percent of Oregon’s electricity consumers, are located in 32 counties and maintain 26,000 miles of line traversing Oregon’s most rugged terrain, encompassing about two-thirds of the state’s land.

For eight decades, Oregon’s rural electric cooperatives have delivered clean, renewable, reliable and affordable electricity to their members. It is a record of which we are extremely proud. Yet, each legislative session, Oregon cooperatives are subjected to mandates or other proposals that make it even more challenging to deliver the electricity you need in your daily lives – when you need it and at a price you can afford.

We are not powerless. It’s amazing how an organized group of citizens can impact the political process simply by banding together in a collective voice. Please join thousands of other Oregon electric cooperative members who are already part of this vital program. By joining, you’ll maximize your voice and become part of a growing team of electric cooperative advocates in the state of Oregon. Together, we can make a difference, keep your rates affordable and preserve your co-op’s independence.
