Mixing in solar
A diverse energy portfolio helps balance any significant cost increase of a single fuel source. Ours includes natural gas, coal, nuclear and hydropower, another alternative energy source. Adding solar is an example of our commitment to making renewable energy a larger part of our generation mix.
Newest solar venture
Construction began in April 2017 on a 52 MW solar energy facility in Lamar County that covers 540 acres. Origis Energy is constructing and will operate the electric generation site. Cooperative Energy will purchase all power produced at the location. At completion of the facility in December 2017, the site will encompass approximately 208,000 photovoltaic solar panels.
