in addition to wind and other Dairyland generating facilities.

Dairyland’s renewable energy resources include hydro, wind, biomass and solar. Member cooperatives promote renewable energy to their consumer-members through Evergreen, a voluntary program in which members can choose to support Dairyland’s renewable energy resources.

Dairyland’s commitment to renewable resources grows each year, with new projects coming online regularly.

Consumer-owned renewable energy

Dairyland’s member cooperatives have experienced a considerable increase in consumer-owned distributed generation installations recently, thanks to favorable economics and decreased manufacturing costs. Dairyland works with our member cooperatives on policies that help enable the development of consumer-owned renewable energy projects including wind turbines and photovoltaic arrays (solar).

Over 300 consumer-owned distribution generation installations are located throughout Dairyland’s service territory.

Dairyland is also a leader in the National Renewables Cooperative Organization, a national cooperative to develop cost-effective renewable energy resources for electric cooperatives across the nation.
