While many electric cooperatives across the country view distributed generation as a threat and have put up barriers to block its development, others have taken a more proactive approach.  Electric co-ops in Arkansas created a company called Today’s Power Incorporated (TPI) that has helped bring solar to their distribution co-ops and individual members.

“If the industry is warming up to solar and has an interest in it, then who better to meet their needs than us?” said Michael Henderson, TPI president and chief financial officer of Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corp.
