Fast evolving technologies and policy initiatives are transforming all sectors of the electric utility industry, including electric cooperatives. No energy source is changing faster or generating more questions than solar energy.

Electric cooperatives are embracing the challenge. Across the country, co-ops have nearly 240 megawatts of solar capacity online or on the drawing board. Cooperatives are developing innovative solutions that balance business priorities and consumer goals, while ensuring reliable, affordable, and sustainable electric power for all.
