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.
In 2011, consumption of renewable sources in the United States totaled about 9 quadrillion Btu or about 9% of all energy used nationally. About 13% of U.S. electricity was generated from renewable sources in 2011.
