The Evolution of the Electric Cooperative Power Supply (#961.1)
1-1/2 Skill Builder Credits

Co-op boards face a rapidly evolving energy landscape. Power supply decisions are more complex, riskier, and have greater cost consequences than ever before. Low natural gas prices, renewable portfolio requirements, falling wind and solar costs, and environmental regulations are leading a fundamental shift in the U.S. generation portfolio. This shift has significant implications for electricity suppliers and consumers. This course focuses on strategies boards can pursue in the face of this uncertainty including understanding what members want, working closely with power suppliers, communicating with members, and being their trusted energy advisor.
Key topics:
  • Brief History on “How We Got Here”
  • Regulation
  • Transmission/Markets
  • The Electric Cooperative Today
