Join us, Sunday, February 25, 12 pm-5 pm in Nashville

The Department of Defense (DoD) has been involved for some time in finding ways to increase energy efficiency and its utilization of renewable energy, while working strategically with utility partners.

​With the release of the Request for Information (RFI) from the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA)/ United States Air Force (USAF) earlier this year, now is a perfect time to learn how cooperatives can collaborate with the military to fulfill its energy assurance goals.

Join us, Sunday, February 25, 12 pm-5 pm in Nashville to learn how America’s Electric Cooperatives can:

  • Leverage their existing contracts and/or compete for new contracts with local military installations

  • Strategically work with the DoD to the benefit of the electric cooperative community

  • Apply lessons learned from fellow cooperatives and their DoD counterparts already competing in this space to align themselves with the nation’s largest single consumer of energy

  • Utilize existing knowledge, resources and relationships unique to cooperatives to position themselves to lead Energy as a Service (EaaS) programs for many DoD installations

What Your Peers Have to Say​

"It's certainly an honor and a privilege to work closely with military personnel who are out there fighting to protect the freedom we all take for granted each day.  Their world experiences and vastly different backgrounds make them the most interesting workforce that you will ever interact with.  When you see these young airman and airwomen at the Minot Air Force Base performing their job, paying attention to the smallest details and carrying out their mission with such accuracy it just makes you feel good that our country is in very good hands."
-Randy Hauck, General Manager, Verendrye Electric Cooperative, Inc.

"CHELCO has been providing service to portions of Eglin AFB for over 70 years.  We are very excited to have the opportunity to support all the infrastructure on Eglin AFB through the utility privatization contract as we have always been very supportive of the military community we serve.  This contract allows CHELCO to support our national defense and Eglin's mission by providing reliable electrical service to Eglin AFB.  Our employees are proud to serve Eglin AFB."
-Matthew Avery, Vice President of Engineering, CHELCO
