Voices for Cooperative Power

Voices for Cooperative Power is a network of Americans dedicated to transforming rural and suburban communities to educate policymakers on the localized, community-based approach that electric co-ops take to keep the lights on. As job creators, economic drivers, and, most importantly, community members, co-ops play a key role in the future of rural and suburban America. VCP works to highlight this role.
