Power Hour Connects Members and Co-op Leadership
July 19th, 2022

Fredericksburg, Va. – For over an hour, on Wednesday evening member-owners of Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) participated in a question and answer discussion directly with President and CEO John Hewa and REC’s chairman of the board of directors Chris Shipe during the Power Hour Town Hall.

REC invited a random sample of 50,000 member-owners to participate in the call. Nearly 12,000 members accepted the call to participate.

Members asked questions about such topics as reliability, the outage restoration process, solar and cybersecurity, electric vehicle charging, high bills, and broadband.

REC hosts Power Hour meetings for members to be able to ask questions directly to the Cooperative’s leadership. Members who did not have their questions answered live, as well as those who left a voicemail received follow-up calls from REC’s management team and other REC leaders.

Anyone who was unable to participate in the live, call can listen to the recording by visiting REC’s newsroom at https://myrec.coop/news
