This will be a milestone year for Tri-State and its members. In 2016, approximately 25 percent of the energy Tri-State and its member systems will deliver to more than 1 million consumers will be generated from renewable resources, making the association one of the leading utilities in the country for using renewable power
Since its inception, Tri-State has used renewable energy through the federal hydropower system, and as costs for other renewable resources have decreased, Tri-State has added wind and solar energy to its portfolio.
Our members are leading the way
Tri-State also supports its members’ development of local renewable energy and distributed energy resources, with incentives and technical support for the development of member-owned or sponsored projects. Collectively, these member projects (completed or under development) account for approximately 76 megawatts of renewable energy resources.
