NFEC President’s Message


Jimmy Taylor Tomorrow’s Energy A


couple of years ago there was an issue facing the rural electric program that had the potential to


have a negative effect on our cooperative and your pocketbook as a consumer. The threat was the Cap and Trade bill that was making its way through Congress at the time.


As a result of this threat NRECA initiated a national campaign called Our Energy, Our Future. The program enabled our cooperative members to express their concern with that particular piece of legislation. Several of you participated and with other co- op members from across America, we were able to help push that debate in a different direction.


We are now being faced with a current issue that again has the potential to negatively impact your future electric rates. The EPA has proposed greenhouse gas emissions rules that would effectively eliminate coal as a future source of fuel. To accomplish what the EPA wants them

to do; new coal plants would have to use technology that is not commercially available at this time.


To meet our future electricity generation needs, it is important to have all fuel options available as we continue to try to keep our costs down. This includes natural gas, renewable, coal and nuclear.


Once again you have an opportunity to help us with this issue by letting the EPA know you oppose the proposed rule. It’s as easy as it was last time. Simply go to the website www.ourenergy.coop. Go to the Join the Campaign box in the upper right hand corner and click on Take Action. This should take you where you need to go to complete your participation.


The more members who participate, the louder our voice is. This is an opportunity for you to help keep our future electric rates affordable. Thank you for your help. I look forward to seeing you at our 73rd


Annual Meeting.
