December 2011 Managers Message

Section 169 of the Clean Air Act was enacted to establish a national visibility protection goal.  The Act calls for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish rules that ensure reasonable progress is made towards meeting this national goal.  It also provides the primary authority to states to implement visibility requirements through state implementation plans.  The EPA’s role is clearly to provide oversight and assume authority if a state’s plan is determined to be inadequate.

At Renville-Sibley Co-op Power Association the people who receive electricity are not just customers, they are members of our cooperative. Members enjoy certain rights that customers don’t have with other electric providers. For instance, as a member of Renville-Sibley, you can choose to run for a board seat.
