We are REC – a podcast series produced in partnership with Rappahannock Electric Cooperative.

We recorded today’s episode via Zoom with David Koogler, Senior Vice President of Member Services & External Affairs to learn how REC works to advocate on behalf of the member owners to ensure their voices are being heard.

David explained why it’s important for REC to engage with local legislators and elected officials and gave a few examples of their input on recent bills.

We also talked a bit about electric cars, their growth in our area and across the country and how REC seeks to be more of a resource when making the choice to convert to an EV.
