The U.S. agricultural sector represents a major
source of potential new electric revenue derived from beneficial
electrification. Roughly 85 percent of the over 2.1 million farms in the U.S.
registered with the USDA are located in counties served by co-ops. A recent
analysis shows that electrifying farm equipment currently using fossil fuels on these farms
would equate to between $4.4 and $5.4 billion in potential new annual
revenue for co-ops, an increase of 12 to 15 percent versus current
co-op electric sales nationally. Learn more in this report:
