Nationwide Search Announced for National Renewables Cooperative Organization Chief Executive Officer

The National Renewables Cooperative Organization (NRCO) announces the launch of a nationwide search for a new Chief Executive Officer. The search follows the departure of former CEO Amadou Fall who joined North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation (NCEMC) as Chief Operating Officer.  The NRCO Board of Directors has retained CarterBaldwin Executive Search to assist in the identification of their next CEO.

NRCO was created in 2008 by 15 electric cooperatives who recognized that renewable generation technology was poised for widespread adoption across the U.S. The cooperatives realized the potential for renewables to revolutionize energy markets.

NRCO serves its members with renewable energy project origination and power purchase agreement (PPA) negotiations, site selection and development, legal advice, and finance and accounting expertise. Their services have resulted in more than 1,000 MWs of utility-scale and community renewable projects being installed for cooperatives in over 20 states.  NRCO has expertise in projects dealing with wind, solar, biomass, hydro, and coal bed methane, and is always searching for new innovations to provide value to its members.  NRCO is motivated to create innovative solutions to lead its members through the maze of new storage applications, new grid infrastructure projects, evolving federal and state policies, and emerging technologies that will solidify a clean and reliable grid.  Providing constant education on these evolving trends and technologies is an essential function of NRCO for its members.

Today, NRCO has 21 members that have a combined peak load of nearly 40 GWs and serve more than 7.6 million homes and businesses.  Membership in NRCO is open to generation and transmission cooperatives (G&Ts) and distribution cooperatives who have the legal ability to buy power in the wholesale market.
