Abstract: Electric cooperatives are adapting to the rapid pace of change in the electric sector—adapting to the evolution in energy markets, technology, and consumer trends. Electric Cooperatives across 48 states are expanding products and services such as renewable energy and distributed energy technologies while ensuring access to energy for all. In doing so, they are cemented their role as trusted energy advisors, community builders and advocates for saving their co-op members money.
