Renewable energy is energy generated from renewable sources. Many renewable energy technologies, such as geothermal, biomass, solar, wind, and hydropower, are easier than ever to use. Ohio’s member-owned electric cooperatives are proof that self-governance, local control, and connection to community can accomplish great things, no matter the size of the utility. Electric cooperatives continue to explore sustainable, economic, long-term solutions to energy industry challenges on several levels, from generation and transmission to the end-use consumer.
