2015 MEC Work Plan

Reliability a principle component

At Missoula Electric Cooperative (MEC) we take service reliability very seriously .  In fact, our recently updated Statement of Values establishes reliability as one of the seven “core values” at the cooperative .  We are pleased our efforts to improve reliability are paying dividends .   During 2014 we recorded the fewest outage events and the fewest outage minutes in recent history .  This drive for continuous improvement continues in 2015, and here is a partial list of projects that are scheduled for this year.

 Huson Substation
With the early onset of spring-like weather, our members living near Huson have probably noticed crews working in and around the substation that feeds the area .  In early March crews set to the task of upgrading equipment within the substation as well as replacement of the lines that exit the substation .  Not only will this work increase the capacity of our distribution feeders, the new lines will be buried beneath Interstate 90, rather than crossing the roadway overhead .  This new route will lead to improved reliability, and eliminate the need to drop and pick the lines for the numerous oversized loads that travel the I-90 route .

What is a Grassroots Movement?


A grassroots movement is a community-centered movement focusing on preserving or advancing the values of the community. The need for grassroots movements stems from the inequity between the interests of small, often isolated interest groups and the traditional power structure. More often than not, grassroots movements are associated with political parties and offices at all levels of government.

Our grassroots program - MEC Roots -  is all about preserving the quality of life our members enjoy by virtue of stable electricity prices delivered by a not-for-profit electric cooperative.  

By signing up for MEC Roots, you can take a more active role in your Cooperative. When you sign up, we will send you a quarterly newsletter covering the challenges that face the Cooperative and ultimately, your rates. When we need a little extra support, we will engage our members to contact their representatives to support or oppose an issue that may have a significant impact on the Cooperative. Read more.
