generation is currently the most reliable form of electricity for members. Wind - Rural electric cooperatives


took the lead in Missouri wind pow- er when AECI teamed up with Wind Capital Group to bring four wind farms to Missouri. The four wind farms to- tal 300,000 kilowatts and can supply enough electricity for around 53,000 co- operative households.
