Power of Co-op Membership
And the Touchstone advantage

Ask yourself this— What exactly does it mean to be a member of Missoula Electric Cooperative (MEC), a Touchstone Energy electric cooperative? Being a Touchstone Energy Cooperative means going above and beyond. In addi­tion to being guided by our 7 Cooperative Principles, we em­phasize the four core Touchstone values of integrity, innovation, accountability and community.

As a member of MEC, you have the power, a voice and control in how your electric Co-op is run; in what’s best for the commu­nity; in the decisions that allow us to pro­vide affordable elec­tricity for your home. This October, we’re celebrating National Co-op Month, and we’re recognizing the most important part of our co-op – you, our members.  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.
