RALEIGH, N.C., June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- More than 160 board members and employees from North Carolina's electric cooperatives met at the state legislature June 24-25 for the co-ops' annual 'Rally in Raleigh.' 

Cooperative board members and employees talked to legislators about issues that affect the reliability and cost of the power provided to electric cooperative members. "We are always focused on our members and our ability to provide them with affordable, reliable power, and we use this event as an opportunity to educate legislators on the issues that affect consumers' energy bills," said Nelle Hotchkiss, senior vice president of corporate relations for the North Carolina Association of Electric Cooperatives.     

Cooperative employees and board members also shared their successes with projects they are completing in their districts including new construction, energy efficiency, economic development, smart grid, smart meters, community outreach and more. 

North Carolina's electric cooperatives collectively provide energy to more than 2.5 million people across 93 of the state's 100 counties. The 26 cooperatives are private, independent and not-for-profit entities that have long supported responsible stewardship of the environment balanced with providing safe, affordable, and reliable energy.
