New Clean Energy Projects in 2024

2024 marks a significant milestone on our journey to providing our members with 100% clean energy by 2030.

Not only do these large-scale projects bring us closer to our clean energy goals, but they also bring significant power supply cost savings.

We anticipate that these partnerships will save our membership approximately $40 million over the next ten years compared to our previous power supply portfolio.
