What Is the National Renewables Cooperative Organization?
In the tradition of cooperatives working together, cooperatives across the country have formed the National Renewables Cooperative Organization (NRCO) to facilitate the development and deployment of renewable energy resources.
Membership in the NRCO is open to generation and transmission coopera-tives (G&T’s) and distribution cooperatives who have the legal ability to buy power in the wholesale market.
Generation from wind in the United States increased from about 6 billion kilowatthours in 2000 to about 120 billion kilowatthours in 2011.
