The Clean Energy Expo is an opportunity for Roanoke Cooperative to share updates and detail efforts to make a clean energy transition that reduces carbon-intensive power generation. Working with cooperatives across the state, Roanoke Cooperative is implementing innovations to evolve the grid and enhance service to members while also pursuing a sustainability goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.

“Our strategy, known as Electrify Roanoke, focuses on beneficial electrification,” said CEO Marshall Cherry. “This concept encompasses both environmental concerns and lower energy costs. Electricity should be the expansive fuel source for residential, agricultural, commercial, and industrial technologies, thereby increasing load growth while simultaneously working with policymakers to ensure the capacity is available to maintain a reliable electrical grid.”

The Expo also serves as a platform for the co-op to share its clean energy vision for the future. Join Roanoke Cooperative and special guests and vendors to discover the latest, most innovative clean energy products, services, and technologies in the electric cooperative industry.
