With rising energy costs, renewable energy is on everyone's mind including MiEnergy's and its power supplier, Dairyland Power Cooperative (DPC). Each power supply path that DPC chooses to meet its members' future needs has unique characteristics to evaluate including project time, transmission access, levels of risk and financial impact. DPC and MiEnergy work together to provide safe, clean, affordable and reliable electricity to members.
DPC is recognized as an industry leader in renewable energy, currently netting about 55 megawatts (MW), and is continuing to grow its portfolio of renewable energy. By gradually adding renewables to its energy portfolio as it has been, DPC and its members feel less of the financial impact of these investments. This gradual addition of renewables also allows technology to progress to help increase the reliability and efficiency of renewable sources for energy generation.
