Ever had someone show up on your doorstep or call you to see if you wanted to change electric providers? They may ask you to "switch to 100% renewable transmission" or something along those lines.
Do NOT give out your personal information or account number to anyone unless you can verify it's the cooperative. If you're ever unsure, hang up the phone and call us back directly.
If you live in cooperative territory (like North Western Electric's), you receive your electricity from, and are an owner and member of, that co-op. Co-ops are unique because we have complete control over our energy supply and own all of our generation resources, keeping rates stable and competitive.
So, there's no need for members like you to "choose" your power supplier -- you already own it! This is why you can't "switch" providers. Market prices fluctuate with demand, while co-op prices are locked in place.
*If you notice an aggregation issue on a local ballot, rest assured that you won't be affected if you're a co-op member. Your power will still come from North Western Electric Cooperative - no surprises.
Keep your control, and be confident in your co-op. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
