Community Solar Project
KEC is planning to offer members the option to participate in a community solar project. It would work like this: KEC will build, own and operate a solar array. The solar array will be divided into several shares to be offered to interested members on a subscription basis. Each member who subscribes will pay an upfront cost covering their portion of the array and receive a monthly energy credit on their bill equal to the amount of energy produced by that share. This option might be most attractive to those who do not wish to operate and maintain a solar array on their own property. KEC takes care of installation, maintenance and insurance fees, making it easy for members to participate. This program is still in development, so watch for more details in 2017.
