Riverland Energy and electric cooperatives through the U.S. are continually working with local, state and U.S. representatives and senators to ensure affordable energy costs for the future. Riverland Energy does not choose particular political parties, but instead works to educate all legislators on the possible effects particular bills can have on their constituents.

ACRE: Co-op Owners for Political Action

As a member of Riverland Energy Cooperative, you are among 42 million Americans who can claim ownership in a not-for-profit consumer-controlled utility that provides electricity at cost. The Action Committee for Rural Electrification (ACRE®) is the political action committee of the nation’s electric cooperatives.

Founded in 1966, ACRE supports candidates for the U.S. House and Senate who will speak for and protect the interests of electric cooperatives and their members.
