White River Electric Committed to Support & Promote Meeker

White River Electric Association successfully obtained matching donation grants to assist the Meeker School District, Pioneers Healthcare Foundation and the Rio Blanco Historical Society. White River Electric’s goal is to support and promote growth in our community.  With the support of its wholesale power company, Tri-State Generation and Transmission, and using matching funds from Basin Electric Power Cooperative, WREA donated a total of $26,800 to these three entities in early 2015.  The matching funds program allows the WREA board to make discretionary donations to help meet the needs of the rural community to promote growth and stability for rural members of WREA.  WREA is grateful for the support of Tri-State G&T and Basin Electric that helped make such a generous donation possible. 

WREA Board President, Bill Jordan and WREA General Manager, Alan Michalewicz presented Barone Middle School Principal Jim Hanks and student Brandon Lozano with $8,000 for the Chromebooks initative.
