Missoula Electric Cooperative
GET TO KNOW YOUR CO-OP NETWORK
The power behind your power
Every day, Missoula Electric Cooperative (MEC) is hard at work to make sure all of our members have the electric power they need at the best possible price. Our guiding principle of “cooperation among cooperatives” acknowledges that we are most effective when cooperatives work together toward a common goal. That’s why behind the scenes, we are working with a network of cooperatives to make that happen.
As you know, every month we generate an electric bill that we send to you either electronically or through regular mail. Recently we introduced the SmartHub mobile app and web tool allowing 24/7 access to your account information. We use National Information Systems Cooperative to ensure we can apply the latest technology, help lower your energy costs and send timely, accurate bills to you.Read More
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.
