Renewable energy represents an important part of Hoosier Energy’s all-of-the-above power supply portfolio, which includes coal, natural gas, energy efficiency and renewable generation.
To help meet member electricity needs now and in the future, Hoosier Energy’s Board of Directors established a voluntary renewable energy policy in 2006 to encourage the development of efficient, economical renewable energy resources. The power supply cooperative’s renewable energy program includes landfill methane gas, coalbed methane, solar, wind and hydro resources.
Hoosier Energy pursues smaller scale renewable energy projects that make economic sense and offer a reliable source of power for member systems’ consumers. Three percent of Hoosier Energy’s current generation resources come from renewables, with a target to provide 10 percent of total generation from renewables by 2025.
