What is Rural?

Small towns and rural countryside make up three fourths of the land area in the United States and are home to 14% of the total US population. Rural America, defined as areas with a population of less than 50,000,  is also a way of life with a proud and independent culture all its own. Just as rural and small-town America’s lifestyle is unique to its geography, so too are its energy, economic, and societal challenges.

In our 2018 Rural Energy Conference, we will convene leaders from industry, utilities, cooperatives, non-profits, academia, and all levels of government to discuss how energy efficiency technologies and programs can help rural America’s leverage its unique characteristics for economic growth and social equity.
