2022 ODEC Power Supply Mix

The following pie chart shows a breakdown of ODEC’s power supply mix for 2022.

Old Dominion Electric Cooperative is a member-owned, not-for-profit wholesale generation and transmission electric cooperative. ODEC supplies power for not-for-profit retail distribution cooperatives in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware, serving 1.5 million people. Because ODEC is not driven by profit, its No. 1 priority is serving members and their communities.

In 2022, ODEC generated or purchased over 12.4 million megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity for resale to its member distribution cooperatives and to non-members. The power supply mix of individual ODEC members may vary as a result of purchases or generation of power directly from other resources.
