C ommunity

Community

  • Good for the Environment

    • Reduces CO2 Emissions by 5,000 metric tons

    • Equivalent to planting 750 trees or taking 750 cars off the road

  • Good for the Economy

    • Local generation creates local

      construction jobs

  • Good for United Power

    • Cost of Energy is predictable

      and stable

    • Helps meet RPS requirements

    • Net benefit to all co-op members


Renewable generation rps

Renewable Generation & RPS

  • Continue to develop projects that benefit overall membership

  • Enhances community presence and co-op reputation

  • Provides hedge against rising energy prices

  • Needed to meet higher RPS requirements

  • Working with Tri-State to develop these small DG projects
