Member Advisory Committee (MAC) meetings & news

Member Advisory Committee (MAC) meetings.

For our October MAC meetings, more than 157 members attended and were given a presentation by the General Manager & CEO Jim Mangum over the course of two evenings. Members were advised of an upcoming residential rate increase effective January 1 and walked through the variety of factors that contributed to this increase. Members were walked through the cooperative’s special rates including the Time of Use rate as an alternative for members who would like to potentially save more on their monthly bill. Members were also informed of the growth of Wake Electric’s population and how the cooperative is expanding infrastructure to increase reliability through projects like the new Knightdale substation that was opened this Summer. Members were given the platform to ask questions directly to the management team ranging from the fallout of Duke’s coal ash relocation, cybersecurity, substation security and solar energy. Members were given the opportunity to test drive some of the cooperative’s newest addition to their Electric Vehicle fleet including a Tesla Model Y, Rivian R1T truck and new Ford F-150 Lightning. Each meeting included a catered dinner as well as several drawings for $25 credits on electric bills.
