This can be challenging as we recognize the incredible diversity that exists among our members. Our members range from co-ops with 1,900 consumers to co-ops that serve more than 129,000 consumers. Our members are diverse in other ways too, including their geographic location, which generation and transmission co-op provides their wholesale power, how many states they operate in, etc. Although MREA responds to a wide range of issues, our goal is to always act in the best interests of all members. Whether we’re connecting members to the information they need, conducting a safety service day, or lobbying at the capitol, MREA’s purpose is to create value for each member and maintain unity among our co-op members."

Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue today announced that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is offering up to $600 million in loans and grants to help build broadband infrastructure in rural America. Telecommunications companies, rural electric cooperatives and utilities, internet service providers and municipalities may apply for funding through USDA’s new ReConnect Program to connect rural areas that currently have insufficient broadband service. Answering the Administration’s call to action for rural prosperity, Congress appropriated funds in the fiscal year 2018 budget for this broadband pilot program. USDA Rural Development is the primary agency delivering the program, with assistance from other federal partners. More information at: USDA.gov
