Who We Are

Services Tailored to Meet Your Needs

  • We offer an array of services to members, grouped into Advocacy and Power Services
  • As part of our Advocacy services, you get 1:1 help from our expert staff on any issue related to Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) power and transmission
  • Go beyond advocacy issues by electing into Northwest Requirement Utilities (NRU) Power Services where we acquire and manage power and transmission based on your needs and provide other support services


NRU advocates on behalf of its members for cost-effective and reliable wholesale power supply and
transmission service (including transfer service) from BPA.

NRU educates and informs members about BPA and other regional power supply and transmission issues.

NRU supports members’ goal of preserving the historical benefits of BPA power and transmission services (including transfer service) while also helping members understand options for cost-effective and reliable power and transmission services to be flexible and adaptable for a possibly different post-2028 future.
