Eighteen North Carolina electric cooperatives in June sponsored 31 rising high school seniors on the annual Rural Electric Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. In addition to learning about cooperatives and forming their own, the participants toured the U.S. Capitol (shown), and visited their Congressional representatives, Arlington National Cemetery and other Washington area sites.

Energy Efficiency Tip
Properly hooking up your clothes dryer can help save on energy costs. Check to make sure the dryer vent hose is tightly connected to the dryer and also to the inside wall fitting. The vent hose should not be kinked or clogged.
