Co-ops Hit High Point of 58% Renewables
At one point in early May, electric co-op power supplier Tri-State Generation and Transmission supplied 58% renewable energy to its members.
It was a sunny May 4, and Tri-State averaged 46% renewable energy for its members for the day, peaking at 58%. Then again, on May 7, Tri-State averaged 47% renewable energy for its members with a peak of 55%.
The power supplier’s goal is to provide 50% renewable energy for its members year round by 2024. It is adding an additional 1,000 megawatts of wind and solar to its system to accomplish this goal.
