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.
