No matter how folksy a co-op may be, its fundamental obligation is to stay in business. It must charge whatever it takes in order to cover costs.
Community Events, April 2015
Why look to government to supply our every want and need? Particularly since that always means agreeing to higher and higher taxes. Here is my suggestion...
OPALCO can negotiate for materials and salaries, and seek to negotiate with BPA on rates at long intervals, but neither BPA nor OPALCO can control the cost of power when OPALCO’s members’ power needs exceed the fixed-price contracted amount under the OPALCO-BPA power purchase contract. BPA’s reliance on hydropower makes it a farmer too.
If we choose to continue to believe that doing the same thing over and over again with the expectation of different results, then the 2016 election results are predictable.
The powers that be at OPALCO say they are listening to your concerns. While there's nothing wrong that, we’ll suggest a bit more dialogue would prove beneficial for all.
