Do you want to invest in solar, but you can’t? Maybe your roof doesn’t point south, or it’s shaded most of the time. Maybe you rent. Maybe you just can’t come up with the up-front cost of a solar system. Well, if your local distributor is Duck River EMC, all those problems are solved!
Duck River EMC has become the first local distributor in the Tennessee Valley Authority’s service territory to offer its members access to their very own community solar farm.
DREMC looked around their service territory and noticed they had a dozen or more solar photovoltaic installations feeding electricity into their system. Clearly there’s some interest by their members in solar. So DREMC built a 26 kilowatt solar farm near their headquarters in Shelbyville, Tennessee.
If you’re a DREMC member, this gives you the opportunity to purchase a share of the solar array. The array consists of 108 panels, manufactured by Sharp right here in Tennessee. DREMC is offering the chance to buy an interest in the electrical production of half of one of these panels for $600. So there are 216 shares available.
What do you get for your investment? You get access to the benefits of the electricity produced by the system.
