Local Renewable Energy Projects
Cooperatives have a unique role in the development of local, community-based renewable energy and distributed generation projects.
Tri-State’s board of directors has authorized an aggressive, first-of-its-kind in the nation program to incentivize the development of local renewable energy projects within its members' service territories. Under the program, Tri-State will make available renewable performance payments to its members to support a variety of community-based renewable energy projects.
The renewable energy incentive program further enables Tri-State members to develop local renewable resources that diversify the resource base while assisting to meet renewable portfolio standards requirements. These projects complement Tri-State’s existing renewable portfolio and the near-term addition of utility-scale renewable resources.
