Our Solar Share facility in Simpsonville (just off I-64 in Shelby County) is now halfway finished. Construction on sections three and four is complete, and they are now fully operational. Each section contains 1,150 solar panels. There are more than 1,300 total subscribers for the two sections – a combination of residential and business customers.
When the facility is complete, there will be a total of eight 500-kilowatt sections, for a total of four megawatts. Subscriptions for section five – which is more than 80% subscribed – are currently being accepted. Construction begins once a section is fully subscribed.
Participation in the Solar Share program lets customers get the benefits from solar energy without having to pay the added up-front and long-term expenses that come with installing and maintaining a private solar system. When energy is produced by the facility, customers earn credits on their monthly bills based on their subscription levels. Each 250-watt share is $5.55 per month (less than 20 cents a day). There is also an option to purchase 25 years of participation for a one-time charge of $799.
