Apply for OPALCO membership

When you join the Orcas Power & Light Cooperative (OPALCO), you add to a long tradition of neighbors joining with others to provide services that enhance the viability and improve the quality of life for their community. The need to provide electricity drove the beginnings of the Co-op, and energy services are a mainstay of membership. All members are encouraged to attend the Annual Meeting and participate in the election of their representatives.

To join OPALCO, please submit an application (Residential or Business), available here in portable document format (PDF) for download.
