Communications are the key to running an efficient Cooperative especially Yellowstone Valley Electric Cooperative (YVEC).  We want to keep all of our members informed of what is happening at the Cooperative.


As a member or consumer of YVEC, each month you will receive free of charge a copy of the Rural Montana magazine which is the official publication of the Montana Electric Cooperatives’ Association.  This will keep you up to date with current issues facing the electrical cooperatives.

Each month a message will appear on your electric bill.  Make sure you read these informative messages each month.  Periodically an insert called Power Lines with pertinent information will accompany your monthly bill.
