La Plata Electric Association earns national green power award

Tri-State member co-op La Plata Electric Association (Durango, Colo.) has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy as one of six organizations in the nation to receive a Green Power Leadership Award for its commitment to supporting electricity generated from a renewable resource.
Currently, a majority of LPEA’s renewable energy is purchased through the cooperative’s power supplier, Tri-State, which continues to add to its portfolio a mix of renewable options for its member systems.
The Durango-based power supplier is the only rural electric cooperative in the nation to receive this honor. “We’re tremendously honored to receive this national award,” said Greg Munro, the co-op’s CEO. “Credit for LPEA’s success in our green power program goes to our creative and enthusiastic staff and board, who have worked hard to get the word out to our communities about the benefits of supporting renewable energy.”
