We promote clean, accessible, community owned power in our community. Local energy brings shared well-being and resilience. We partner with Northern Plains and others promote regulations & laws that strengthen our ability to bring the benefits of clean energy to all.

Senior Center Solar Up and Running!
We’re proud that our YBCC partnership with the Senior Center Senior Center resulted on a 50K solar array, a huge asset that will generate savings for the Center long into the future.
Our Work Pays Off: Solar Panels on our Library
YBCC secured a NorthWestern Energy grant for solar panels on our Park County Public library, and the panels went up in late July 2016 (they can be glimpsed on the southwest corner of the building). The energy savings will benefit all library patrons while the real-time monitor inside provides education about solar benefits. YBCC partnered with Friends of the Library to host a celebration for the new panels in Sept. 2016.
