Just as they were pioneers in the development of rural electrification, the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas were also at the forefront of the renewable energy movement. Long before "green power" became a household phrase, the cooperatives began a commitment to develop hydropower along the Arkansas River to the fullest extent possible.
As we continue to look for innovative ways to provide Arkansans with environmentally sound power resources, we are asking for your help. New technology needs to be developed, and that is costly. To support this effort, we are offering a new GreenPower program in which you can contribute to the development of additional renewable energy resources, as well as further help spread the word about ways to use energy more efficiently.
