We need your help!

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission (CoPUC) is considering an exit member charge for two Colorado cooperatives that are members of Tri-State Generation and Transmission (Tri-State) — our wholesale power provider — but not allowing input from the other 17 electric cooperatives that will be impacted by the exit member charge.

Why is this cause for concern?

  • The outcome of the CoPUC decision could have a significant impact on the cost of wholesale power, and on your electric rates.
  • As a member-owned electric cooperative, Mountain View Electric Association, Inc. (MVEA) has a responsibility to provide elected officials and industry leaders with the information they need to make good decisions and effective policy.
  • As an MVEA member, you can help make sure these important lines of communication stay open by using the power of your voice.

How to help

  • We urgently ask you to take action and send a letter to the CoPUC and CoPUC Director Doug Dean that concludes that they not support the ongoing CoPUC case unless MVEA and the other impacted cooperatives in the state are included in the discussion before the decision is rendered.
  • This letter is being used by electric co-ops throughout Colorado to unite in this grassroots effort to make sure the voice of our co-op members is represented and heard.

Thank you for being part of MVEA’s grassroots effort!
