Western MT: Sign the Petition in Attempt to Keep Electricity Affordable


A potential settlement agreement (related to ongoing litigation over the Columbia River Basin hydropower system) could pose horrific ramifications for electric Co-op members in western Montana. To stand against this please consider signing the petition by clicking here. (More detailed information in the next paragraph).

“Your member-owned, not-for-profit electric co-op operates on a longstanding, clearly defined mission: to provide competitive and reliable services. That mission defines the job your Co-op does every day and takes very seriously – to distribute affordable (competitive) and reliable (your power is almost always on) electricity to you. For Flathead Electric Cooperative members, that electricity is largely generated by hydropower.

Your Co-op’s mission is threatened by a potential settlement agreement related to ongoing litigation over the Columbia River Basin hydropower system. Your Co-op strongly believes that this agreement will have grave consequences for the reliable, affordable electricity Co-op members and millions of others in our 8-state region have relied on for over 80 years.”
