Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Q. How do power suppliers use the RERC?
A. Most utilities use the Council to stay updated on successful power supplier programs around the country. Others need an unbiased information source to help answer questions from their customers. Because the RERC works closely within the electric utility industry, it understands the business aspects and interests of power suppliers in serving customers.
Q. Are the Council’s topic areas strictly about agricultural electricity use?
A. No. Although many of our publications involve farm electricity topics, we assist with residential, commercial and small industry topics. Consider electric motors as an example. Several members have used our 1-day training course on motor basics and efficiency to assist key account customers, and to educate staff. Similar subjects include standby generators, residential energy audits, power quality, grounding and renewable energy.
