Read the 1.11.20 Cape Cod Times article on CVEC’s tremendous accomplishments for the Cape & Islands!
The Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative (CVEC) was created in 2007 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. 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, due for completion in 2020, CVEC will have facilitated the installation of 53 renewable energy projects, able to meet over 3% of the Cape & Vineyard’s electrical use with renewable energy.
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.

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.

CVEC is an advisory member of the Cape Cod Climate Change Collaborative.

In November 2019, CVEC awarded another PV/Storage Initiative, Round 5, which is estimated to total another ~14MW.
