Going solar just got a lot easier. With our Community Solar Garden program, CEC members can subscribe to have a portion of their monthly energy usage generated by our very own solar array.
Construction will begin as soon as the materials and a contractor are in place. We are seeing delays in production of the items needed for this program, like so many other projects that rely on the same components.
The new solar array will be across the street from our headquarters, on South Alabama Regional Airport property, in Sanford. Participating members will be able to sign up for a 12-month agreement to buy an average of 187 kWh of solar-generated electricity each month at a flat rate of $20.
Ultimately, the goal of Community Solar is not to lower a subscriber’s power bill. Rather, it is to give members looking for more ways to reduce their carbon footprint the chance to get a portion of the electricity they use from clean power — all while supporting renewable energy right here in their community.
The program also gives our members who are uncertain about solar power a flexible option for exploring its benefits. Installing rooftop solar panels can often be prohibitively expensive for individual households, and it requires navigating local zoning laws. Community Solar makes it easy for any members to sign up and start powering their homes with renewable energy right away.
If you haven’t signed up yet, you can still join before the array goes live — or even after you’ve seen it in action. Just call 800-239-4121 with any questions or complete the form below to apply online. All members are eligible to apply, whether you expressed an interest in solar power on previous annual meeting surveys or not.
