NRECA reached out to a group of electric cooperative CEOs from across the country ahead of the recent annual meeting and TechAdvantage Expo to ask them what they see as the biggest challenge facing their co-op over the next five years.
Twenty CEOs responded, and the answers run the gamut from modernizing the aging electric grid and developing a new generation of co-op leaders to increasing the use of renewables and distributed energy resources. To begin this two-part series, here’s how 10 of the leaders view the challenges ahead for their co-op. NRECA will publish the remaining perspectives on March 26.
The biggest challenge facing our cooperative in the next five years will be modifying our business model to keep pace with our members’ demands for new and innovative products and services.
