COMMUNITY SCALE RENEWABLE RESOURCES

Trico has and continues to make community scale renewables part of its overall resource planning to meet the future energy needs of its Members. With economies of scale, large utility or community renewables can be more than three times less expensive than smaller retail systems. Benefits of community scale renewables are shared by all the Trico membership.

Trico’s community scale systems provide over 45,000,000 kilowatt hours per year of renewable energy or enough to power more than 4,500 homes. Trico’s community scale systems include:
