Thinking of investing in solar energy but don't want the high cost and complications associated with rooftop solar panels? Or maybe there simply isn't enough sunlight where you live. With Cooperative Solar, you now have an easy way to capture your share of the sun, and it's available from many Georgia EMCs.
Solar Energy Benefits, With None of the Hassles
Cooperative Solar allows you to choose just the right amount of solar energy from offsite energy facilities. As a Cooperative Solar subscriber, you'll receive clean, affordable, renewable solar energy directly from our Member EMCs’ portfolio of solar energy resources.
The electricity delivered to your home through the power grid is calculated and the solar energy generated from your share of the total solar portfolio capacity will be credited back to you. We take on the risk of ownership and maintenance, while you receive your share of the sun without the hassle.
How It Works
Cooperative Solar allows EMC member-consumers the opportunity to purchase solar power, regardless of the location of their home or whether they own or rent. The electricity received is generated at off-site solar facilities and energy shares can be purchased from participating EMCs at a nominal monthly rate. The monthly output from each share varies due to the position of the sun, time of year and number of cloudy days. Therefore, consumers receive different amounts of solar energy each month based on the available sunlight and performance of the solar facility.
