You can go solar without having to go solo

January 5, 2021

Want to support local solar energy but don’t want to deal with the high cost of installation? Hesitant to invest in a private system because of continuous maintenance? Well, here’s some good news: KU and LG&E customers can support clean energy and avoid those costs by subscribing to our Solar Share program. Our third (of eight) 1,400-panel array is currently under construction with completion due this summer. The fourth section is now fully subscribed with construction set to begin later this year. And we are now accepting enrollment for the fifth section. The Solar Share facility is located along I-64 in Shelby County. 

Simply select a preferred number of shares at a cost per share of less than 20 cents a day – a monthly charge of $5.55 for each 250-watt share of solar. There is also an option to buy 25 years of participation in the program for a one-time fee of $799. As a program participant, you’ll receive an advanced meter and a credit on your monthly bill based on your subscription level and the amount of energy produced by the facility.
