Chippewa Valley Electric Cooperative is committed to providing a balanced energy supply
that is reliable, affordable and environmentally responsible. As such we have been working with
our power supplier, Dairyland Cooperative, to offer the Evergreen renewable energy program.
The Evergreen project was launched in 1998. This program was created for Dairyland’s electric
cooperative members. Dairyland’s members distribute the renewable energy to their consumers who
are participants of the Evergreen program. Consumers can voluntarily support renewable energy through
this program, with only a slight increase in their monthly electric bill.
What forms of renewable energy make up Evergreen? Dairyland’s diverse “green” portfolio includes wind,
landfill gas-to-energy and animal waste-to-energy. Dairyland also supplies renewable energy to member
cooperatives from their 22 MW Flambeau Hydro Station near Ladysmith, Wis.
