Cooperatives are well-positioned to support their local Department of Defense (DoD) installations and help fulfill their ambitious energy assurance goals. Through these efforts, cooperatives can:
- Leverage their existing contracts and/or compete for new contracts with local military installations
- Work strategically with the DoD to the benefit of the electric cooperative and the 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
Due to DoD rules and procedures, these projects can be particularly complex. NRECA will continue to update this page with relevant resources.
