America's Electric Cooperatives PAC

In the 1930s, 90% of rural homes didn’t have electricity while 90% of urban homes did. As a result, farmers and other rural dwellers came together to seek help from their legislators to eliminate this disparity and that effort led to the creation of the national electric cooperative program.

That spirit continues today through America's Electric Cooperatives PAC (formerly ACRE). This is the political action committee representing the nation’s electric cooperatives. Strong political relationships are key in our industry. We rely on our elected representatives and other federal officials to help establish policy and implement legislation that benefits our customers, and America's Electric Cooperatives PAC gives us a voice in those matters.

Today, more than 35,000 cooperative customers and advocates contribute through America's Electric Cooperatives PAC, and it makes a difference.
