Renewable energy is produced from sources that are constantly replenished and will never run out. Renewable energy such as solar, wind, geothermal, hydropower and sustainable biomass use technologies to convert energy into electricity. 

Nobles Cooperative Electric allows members of the cooperative to sell excess energy from their renewable system to the cooperative. If you are a member and are interested in interconnected solar or wind generation call Nobles Cooperative Electric at 800-776-0517. Please contact us before you start your project. There are rules concerning proper equipment, safety, liability and reimbursement. Our primary concern is making sure cooperative members have safe, reliable and affordable electricity.
