A message from GM/CEO Ricky Davis

We have learned that electric cooperatives across the U.S. have collected one million comments in opposition to the EPA’s proposed rule targeting existing coal-fueled generating plants. Many of you sent in comments to the EPA, and I want to thank each of you for your willingness to participate in this campaign.

The NRECA’s campaign to have one million comments submitted to the EPA has not been a simple task. It would not have been possible without your help.

This is a critical issue, because the EPA’s Clean Power Plan will hurt our ability to offer you competitively-priced electricity in the future. We’ve worked hard to keep our rates affordable, and the EPA’s plans will undo all that.

National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s CEO, Jo Ann Emerson, shared these comments: “Those million comments come from our member-owners and many others who decided to take a stand. They reflect our shared concern that these EPA rules are bad for our cooperatives and our communities.”

The EPA recently extended the comment deadline to December 1, so we have additional time to make our voices heard in opposition to the EPA’s anti-coal plans. To add your voice in opposition, visit

Again, I want to thank all of you who participated in this important campaign.
