Flathead Electric Cooperative (FEC) members are more concerned about their environmental impact than ever. Exploring new and innovative solutions to FEC’s already carbon-free hydropower supply is a priority we take seriously. For our members who have asked us what more they can do, FEC offers this Renewable Energy Program.
For as little as $5 each month (added to your electric bill), you can demonstrate your personal commitment to a cleaner environment. Your contribution will be used to purchase renewable energy credits from Basin Electric Cooperative generated by wind farms in the Dakota’s and Minnesota. By supporting these alternative renewable energy options, you can make a difference by displacing less environmentally friendly power generation.
Contributing to Flathead Electric’s Renewable Energy program for a year has the equivalent environmental impact of planting nearly 500 trees per year or not driving your car for over two years. (Environmental impact figures may vary based on the user and are approximate.)
