Founded in 1966, the Action Committee for Rural Electrification® (ACRE®) is the federal political action committee (PAC) of the nation’s electric co-ops. ACRE supports political candidates who will speak for and protect the interests of electric co-ops and their consumer-owners. ACRE is truly a grassroots PAC backed by over 35,000 individuals making an average contribution of $65.
Through ACRE Co-op Owners for Political Action®, co-ops can reach out to their residential consumer-owners and invite them to be politically engaged in ACRE and in other important grassroots advocacy initiatives.
