What is ACRE?
More than 42 million Americans can claim ownership in a not-for-profit consumer-controlled utility, like the electric cooperatives that are members of OAEC and that provide electricity at cost. The ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action program is an exciting opportunity for member-owners to raise their voices and participate in the political process.
