Welcome! The Electric Ambassador program is a grassroots effort to enlist support from our members in shaping public policy. This special program also offers you an opportunity to learn more about Nespelem Valley Electric Cooperative (NVEC) and the electric utility industry.
As an Electric Ambassador, you have the opportunity to inform and educate legislators and opinion leaders on issues that affect our community and the future success of our non-profit, rural electric cooperative. Being an Electric Ambassador is easy, and lets you to be as involved as time will allow.

As an Electric Ambassador, you receive these benefits:

  • POWERLINE, a newsletter covering the grassroots movement, energy issues and other electric cooperative communities in Washington state.
  • Live From Olympia, a legislative update of issues that your electric cooperative is following at the state level when the legislature is in session.
  • Briefings on issues affecting the electric utility industry.
  • Invitations to receptions with elected officials sponsored by NVEC.
  • Public thanks and recognition during NVEC’s Annual Meeting.

As an Electric Ambassador, we encourage you to:

  • Support the goals and objectives of your non-profit electric cooperative.
  • Learn more about the benefits of buying electricity from a Public Power utility.
  • Provide feedback on NVEC programs and services.
  • Write, call or email your elected officials about legislation affecting electric rates, power supply, or member service. (Don’t worry, we will provide you with all the background information you need on an issue!)
