Electric co-ops like Clark County REMC are owned and operated by the families and businesses we serve: people just like you. We are your neighbors. We send our kids and grandkids to the same schools, shop at the same stores, and enjoy the same parks and waters.
Our workforce and mission are entirely local, but we are not immune from the impact of state and national legislation. That’s why last month I, along with hundreds of other electric cooperative CEOs from around the nation, spent several days in Washington, D.C., meeting with U.S. representatives and senators on Capitol Hill.
Top of mind was the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, passed by Congress last November, which includes billions of dollars for projects like broadband deployment, electric vehicle infrastructure, cybersecurity, grid resiliency, and clean energy development. All 50 states and thousands of utilities and other agencies will be jockeying for those dollars, but we believe that electric co-ops are uniquely positioned to develop and implement these projects. We’ve been in our communities for more than 80 years, so we have the reputation and commitment to the community needed to stay the course and do it right.
As these projects develop, your board of directors and I will keep advocating for you, both in our small towns and in the halls of government. If you want to stay up to date on these important issues and policies, join our grassroots mailing list at Action.IndianaEC.org.
Whatever it takes, we are here for you!
