Great River Energy sets 50% renewable energy goal for 2030

Great River Energy today announced a company goal to supply its member-owner cooperatives with energy that is 50 percent from renewable resources by 2030. The announcement was made to more than 200 attendees at the cooperative’s annual meeting.

We continue to evolve our power supply portfolio, delivering even more renewable energy to our member-owner cooperatives to help them remain competitive in a changing market,” said Great River Energy President and Chief Executive Officer David Saggau. “We look forward to meeting this goal for the benefit of our members while maintaining strong system reliability.”
