Feasibility Study

As the saying goes, “you get what your pay for” and while others may offer “bargain” studies, is a low cost “cookie cutter approach” in the best interest of your consumer-members and customers as they make one of the biggest decisions in your cooperative’s history?   

NRTC member-focused feasibility studies are: 

  • Highly Customized: Customized to your specific situation. No “cookie cutter” estimates, it’s a real study. 
  • Explore All Options: You deserve to explore all potential technology and service delivery options for your specific situation. 
  • Delivery Dependable Estimates: We take the time to understand your unique circumstances. This may be the single largest investment your cooperative has ever considered. 
  • Recognized in the Industry: Our studies are recognized by all key cooperative lenders and government entities. You can take our studies to the next level and know they are trusted. 
  • Detailed and Specific: An NRTC feasibility study enables you to communicate specific and detailed information customized for your community enabling you to make the best possible decisions.
