Speak up for reliable, affordable energy!

The Energy Information Administration (EIA) projects that U.S. power demand will reach its highest levels ever in 2024 and 2025.

Despite this increase in demand, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is moving forward with regulations that threaten to close always-available power plants and make it harder to build new power plants.  These regulations will increase the risk of rolling blackouts while also making energy more expensive.

Check out this statement from America’s Electric Cooperatives to learn more about the EPA’s new rules and the ways they would impact America’s electric grid.

Our economy and everyday lives increasingly depend on electricity, and we need our elected officials to prioritize policy that keeps the lights on. We were fortunate to experience mild weather 2023, which helped keep demand down and blackouts at bay. However, increasing demand could lead to blackout risks even in temperate conditions.

Please join us in advocating for reliable, affordable energy! Voices for Cooperative Power (VCP) has made it easy to write a letter to your elected officials and advocate against overreaching policies that make it more challenging and expensive to keep the lights on.
