Join MEC Peak Hour Rewards Program!

MEC is looking for members to participate in our Peak Hour Rewards
peak demand reduction program. The intent is to minimize our

Washington D.C. Youth Tour

MEC will participate in the 2019 National Rural Electric Cooperative
Association’s Washington, D.C. Youth Tour. More than 1,500 rural
students take part in the Youth Tour each June.


Students attending have the once in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn the
important roles electric co-ops play in their community, to gain a
personal understanding of American history, and to meet with
congressional representatives and senators to understand their role as
a citizen.
