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.
The world's largest wind farm, the Horse Hollow Wind Energy Center in Texas, has 421 wind turbines that generate enough electricity to power 220,000 homes per year.
