Description
Washington Electric Cooperative is a rural electric distribution co-op serving approximately 11,000 members, primarily residential, in central Vermont. In 2002, with a power supply contract for nuclear power ending, WEC began exploring alternative sources of reliable energy to supply its members. The development of the Coventry Landfill, the largest in the state, has created a reliable base load and renewable energy source for WEC's members that makes up roughly 55% of WEC's power portfolio. WEC financed the various phases of the Coventry LFG energy plant with funds from the USDA Rural Development Loan Program and with Clean Renewable Energy Bonds.
