Oregon Trail Electric Cooperative has made Economic Development and community support a priority. We provide affordable electricity to over 56,000 people, making it easier for families to live here and businesses to operate in Eastern Oregon. We understand how vital electricity is to modern life and take our role as the area’s provider very seriously, having invested over $153 million in a network of overhead and underground lines. Still, our investment doesn’t stop at our network. Along with reliability, we are investing in programs designed to make homes and commercial buildings more energy efficient, provide energy assistance, and giving back to the community through our economic development department, charitable contribution and work in kind programs, and scholarships.
The future is bright for Eastern Oregon. We recognize our cooperative is only as strong as the communities it serves, and that is why we believe there is a more economic opportunity for our region now than ever before. Our economic development team is working closely with community and business leaders to ensure that they have what they need to succeed and that our communities are prepared for growth.
