Dear Member,

Today, Governor Kate Brown approved Deschutes County’s application to enter Phase 1 on May 15. Midstate Electric Cooperative is still facing a lot of unknowns. We continue to monitor and follow the advice from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO) and our state and local government in protecting one another from contracting and spreading COVID-19.

CALL TO ACTION: Please comment on the Columbia River System Operations Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS).

The lower Snake River dams are a critical part of the Northwest’s clean energy future. The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) released in late February recognizes that dam removal “would destabilize the power grid, increase overall greenhouse emissions, adversely affect power rates and more than double the risk of regional power outages.”

Well-funded special interest groups are attempting to sway public opinion away from the benefits of the system in support of breaching the dams.

Lobby Closed Until Further Notice 3/16/2020

Dear Members,

In response to the Governor’s actions today to contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we will be shutting our lobby access until further notice. By limiting access to the public we hope to prevent the spread of the virus.

Our focus during this difficult time is to provide safe and reliable electric service to all members and the key to keeping the utility operating is healthy employees. We have put in place an action plan to separate employee work areas as a prevention measure. In addition, some employees will work from home.
