Beltrami Electric Cooperative and other electric cooperatives throughout the U.S. are continually working with local, state and U.S. representatives and senators to ensure affordable energy costs for the future.
Beltrami Electric does not choose particular political parties, but instead works to educate all legislators on the possible effects particular bills can have on their constituents.
Keeping electric rates affordable is a big concern of the membership and it is why Beltrami Electric gets involved with the political process. Your cooperative works on behalf of the membership to ensure legislation includes affodability.
Keep up-to-date with our legislative and grassroots efforts on both the state and federal levels. We continue to work hard for our members and issues that affect the cooperative. "Grassroots" has an electric co-op definition, one that reflects its importance in the industry. "Grassroots" refers to electric cooperative activists - directors, managers, employees and member-owners - who take an active role in the political process to protect their co-op from harmful legislation and regulation, as well as to promote the value of co-op ownership to their legislators.
