Midstate Electric Cooperative Annual Meeting Update - 6/2/2020

In compliance with Governor Kate Brown’s mandate limiting travel and meetings to protect citizens from the COVID-19 virus, Midstate Electric Cooperative held a limited annual meeting on Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

5/14/2020 Update from the General Manager

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.

Scholarship application deadlines extended to June 1, 2020

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.
