On Tuesday, the Supreme Court decided to temporarily block the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan. This means EPA can’t enforce the rule until the federal courts decide if the rule is legal.
Over the past two years, dedicated advocates, like you, have helped America’s Electric Cooperatives send a strong message to decision makers in Washington, D.C. about our concerns with this flawed plan. Today we welcome this remarkable decision from the Supreme Court!
The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association’s (NRECA) Interim CEO, Jeffrey Connor said, “Charging ahead with implementation of the Clean Power Plan would have caused immediate and irreparable harm to America’s electric co-ops. Had the stay not been granted, co-ops would have been forced to take costly and irreversible steps to comply with the rule, which is a huge overreach of EPA’s legal authority. The Clean Power Plan is a direct threat to co-ops’ ability to provide affordable and reliable electricity to their member consumers and should be erased from the books.”
We want to thank you for your continued interest on this important issue. As a valued advocate we will keep you updated as this process unfolds.

McLean Electric Cooperative
McLean Electric Cooperative is very happy to announce the matching funds required to secure a Rural Development Loan and Grant was met by Cooperatives cooperating with Cooperatives. Reservation Telephone, Great River Energy, Garrison Memorial Hospital, Basin Electric, Cenex Harvest States Elevator and McLean Electric Cooperative pooled together $60,000 to get Federal Grant Funds in the amount of $300,000 for the Garrison Memorial Hospital Emergency Room project. This money along with another $55,000 from McLean Electric Cooperatives revolving loan fund total $415,000 that will be used to fund a good share of the project. The $415,000 will be a zero percent loan for 10 years. As the loan is paid back the money will be available for other community development or economic development projects in the area. McLean Electric General Manager Martin Dahl said” This could not have been done without the help of our friends, the other cooperatives serving the area. Thank you all for your monetary and personal support.” The project is just beginning and is scheduled to be completed by mid-September of this year.
