Our Solar Share program continues to draw enthusiastic support from residential and business customers. Construction is underway on the third and fourth sections of the Shelby County facility.
When completed a little later this year, each 500-kilowatt section will have 1,150 solar panels. At that point, the eight-section facility will be halfway completed. There are still a few subscriptions left for the fifth section. But don’t worry, there’s still time for you to support local solar energy. Once a section is fully subscribed, we begin taking subscriptions for the next section.
The Solar Share program makes it easy to support local solar energy without having to deal with the high cost of installation and continuous maintenance. All you need to do is select the number of shares at a fee per share of $5.55 per month (less than 20 cents a day) 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. Once you are signed up, 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.
