Each June, more than 1,800 young people from around the U.S. head to Washington, D.C., as part of the NRECA Youth Tour. Participants learn about the role that electric cooperatives play in a free enterprise system, especially as it relates to providing electric energy. During the Youth Tour, which is happening this week, students visit Capitol Hill, meet with members of Virginia’s congressional delegation, tour the U.S. Capitol Building, enjoy a dinner cruise down the Potomac River, a Washington Nationals baseball game, sightseeing at iconic U.S. monuments, museums, and much more! Enjoy these photos from the 2019 Youth Tour happening this week! ... See MoreSee Less

WOW! What a sight to see! ⚡️

As summer storms continue to pop up, lightning safety is an important subject to keep in mind. Find a safe, enclosed shelter. The main lightning safety guide is the 30-30 rule. After you see lightning, start counting to 30. If you hear thunder before you reach 30, go indoors. Lightning causes electric currents along the top of the ground that can be deadly over 100 feet away. For more lightning safety tips, visit: www.cdc.gov/features/lightning-safety/index.html.
