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.

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.
