The Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative (CVEC) was created in 2007 to provide municipalities  a way to work together to integrate clean, renewable energy as part of a more sustainable region. Today, CVEC’s 32 governmental participants benefit both from annual savings of over $3,000,000 annually and from commensurate greenhouse gas reduction. With the completion of CVEC’s Photovoltaic/Storage Initiative Round 4 & 5, due for completion in 2021, CVEC will have facilitated the installation of 53 renewable energy projects, able to produce 17 million kilowatt hours of  renewable energy annually.

Liz Argo, CVEC Executive Director, interviewed about CVEC in 2019/2020. Click to see Video.

The Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative 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. To learn more about the mission of CVEC in conjunction with the Cape Light Compact,  click here.

CVEC has completed a Feasibility Study for the Battery Energy Storage System at Dennis-Yarmouth High School to be installed through a Community Clean Energy Resilience Initiative grant from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources.
