The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) is the national service organization dedicated to representing the national interests of electric co-ops and the members we serve.

The National Rural Utilities Cooperative Finance Corporation (CFC) provides funding resources for many electric co-ops throughout the country.

The Rural Utilities Service (RUS) provides leadership and capital to upgrade, expand, maintain, and replace America’s vast rural electric infrastructure.

Federated Rural Electric Insurance Corporation insures your co-op’s assets, such as electrical lines, poles and machinery, in the case of disaster or other misfortune.

The Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) sells power to NVEC at wholesale rates. As an electric co-op, we resell the power to our members at cost. That’s just one benefit of being part of our non-profit, rural electric cooperative!

BPA provides an online database of over 550 companies offering various energy-related services. This is a free service to the companies listed, but without any endorsement or promise of work.

Northwest Power Works, a growing coalition that represents more than 1.3 million customers and businesses in the Pacific Northwest, is opposed to the federal government’s proposal to bring California-style electricity market restructuring and further rate increases to the Northwest.The coalition is working closely with ratepayers, community leaders and public officials to raise the visibility and understanding of the new federal threat to our region’s electricity system.

The Northwest Public Power Association (NWPPA) represents and serves 160+ consumer-owned, locally controlled utilities in the Western U.S. and Canada. NWPPA provides education seminars, public and industry information, timely issue forums and a collective voice for coordinated government relations.

The Public Power Council (PPC) represents the common interests of consumer-owned utilities in the Pacific Northwest. Their objective is to enhance the competitiveness of consumer-owned utilities and their ability to serve their communities. PPC works to ensure access to reliable, low-cost and environmentally sound power. PPC acts as a forum to identify, discuss and build consensus about energy and utility issues.

NRU represents the interests of its members on issues associated with BPA, primarily the supply of wholesale power from the federal-based system and the transmission of power over the BPA network and third-party facilities.
