Rappahannock Electric Cooperative (REC) recently received a $38 million grant through the Department of Energy’s Grid Innovation and Partnership Program. The grant will fund a massive rollout of technologies that will serve as the backbone of the energy transition.
Peter Muhoro is one of the executives at REC that will oversee these projects. The money will be used to implement a new distributed energy resources management system, deploy smart meters, and install a fiber network. Since Peter is bullish on clean energy technology, he’s making sure REC’s long-term strategy is built around it.
This week, Brad speaks with Peter Muhoro, the Chief Strategy, Technology, and Innovation Officer at Rappahannock Electric Cooperative, about why electric cooperatives need to evolve and how to bring that about.
