The Value of Co-op Careers

The cooperative business model serves both an economic and social purpose. Missoula Electric Cooperative (MEC) operates on a not-for-profit basis in order to pass along the best electric rates to you, our members.  In addition to providing this service, we care about our members and the communities we serve.  Whether it’s supporting local organizations or events, educating our youth, or encouraging economic development, at MEC we believe in the cooperative difference.

 Over the next several years, our industry and our country will see a major shift in the professional landscape.  Many businesses are already noticing this change as the Baby Boomer Generation moves into retirement and their children and grandchildren, members of the Millennial Generation, begin to move into the workforce and advance in their careers.  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.
