Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative (CVEC) was created to provide the municipalities of Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard a way to work together to integrate clean, renewable energy as part of a more sustainable Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.
Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative (CVEC) works in concert with the ongoing mission of the Cape Light Compact to advance the interests of electricity consumers throughout Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.

By the end of 2014 CVEC had successfully installed 28.5 megawatts of photovoltaics (PV)! By June 30 2016 the PV projects had brought in almost $6million in avoided electric costs to the region. The CVEC PV projects range from large PV arrays covering entire capped landfills on the Cape & Martha’s Vineyard to smaller arrays on the roofs of schools, police stations and town halls. On May 5th CVEC and the host towns won another award for its PV on capped landfills, this one from the Environmental Business Council. To read about this new award, click here.
