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
During the holiday season, consider using Energy Star-qualified lights and strands to decorate. They use 70 percent less energy than regular lights and last up to 10 times as long. They also give off less heat, reducing the risk of fire.
