Powering A Brighter Future For North Carolina
Our Brighter Future vision combines innovation and enhanced reliability with a commitment to affordable, sustainable electricity and continued community support.
Cooperative Innovation for Rural NC
Solar + Storage
Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS)
Connect To Save Program
Our 5 microgrids place energy resources in local communities, supporting grid resilience and providing power to local homes during large-scale outages.
How Microgrids Work
Solar + Storage
Pairing solar with energy storage enables us to gain the most benefit from an intermittent resource, advancing grid resilience and supporting our goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. We have added 13 solar + storage sites through N.C. that can power over 23,000 homes at peak output.
Battery Energy Storage Systems
Our 10 battery energy storage installations enhance reliability and achieve cost savings that will benefit our consumer-members in rural North Carolina, now and for years to come.
As a distribution operator, North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives are monitoring, aggregating and deploying energy resources distributed across the grid. This cutting-edge capability enhances grid resilience and reliability for electric consumer-members.
Connect To Save
Electric cooperatives are revolutionizing the grid and offering new services to our members. By participating in Connect to Save, co-op members can get a great deal on a smart thermostat, join their neighbors in achieving energy savings for their communities and earn $50 each year for participating, along with other perks.
