Benefits of Membership
Wyrulec Company is an active member of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, a key legislative player in Washington, D.C., on behalf of electric cooperatives across the nation. NRECA both employs lobbyists and promotes lobbying by members and staff from each distribution co-op across the nation. These efforts are necessary to ensure that members are protected (as possible) from onerous rates, senseless regulations, and poor planning at the national level.
Wyrulec Company is an active member of both the Wyoming and the Nebraska statewide electric cooperative associations. Statewide employees also do a tremendous amount of lobbying on behalf of Wyrulec Company and encourage participation in lobbying efforts by members and Wyrulec staff.
Various tax and regulatory issues have come up, and continue to come up, in Wyoming and Nebraska state legislatures. Without a strong, united voice, electric co-op members would incur costs unfairly.
