Increase Member Flexibility
More local renewables for members through contract flexibility
- Member contract flexibility to self-generate more renewable energy than ever before.
Progress in 2021
- We implemented new member-driven policies to allocate 203MW of self-supply capacity to three members interested in taking a more active role in providing power in their communities, and filed supportive policies with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
- We partnered with a member to support development of a remote community’s microgrid to promote resilience through local generation.
- We continued to work with our members to advance options that create flexibility for members that desire it without raising costs for other members.
