Easy, affordable solar power. No matter where you live.
Whitewater Valley REMC is excited to introduce you to My Solar, a cooperative solar program. My Solar provides electricity through solar energy without any installation on your home or business. Members have access to easy, affordable solar power, no matter where you live.
Rather than installing these solar panels on your home or business, Whitewater Valley REMC will keep and maintain your panels at one of our solar arrays. Participating members will see the change on their monthly electric bill, with each panel generating ≈450-500 kWhs annually.
Energy produced through My Solar will be clean and sustainable, helping you to reduce your personal carbon footprint in energy consumption.
Our remote solar arrays are installed and maintained by trained professionals, providing you with a hassle-free way to have solar energy at your home or business.
My Solar provides inexpensive options for investing in renewable energy, while the upfront and ongoing costs of home installations remain high.
Easy, affordable solar power. No matter where you live. Share in the output from 10 solar arrays in southern Indiana, including the New Castle solar array closest to us.
Participating members will be charged a fixed rate of [$0.01], on their monthly electric bill, for every kWh that is produced by their chosen amount of panels.
Participating members pay a one-time upfront payment of $500 to receive the production from a solar panel for 20 years. Then the participating member is credited 5.5 cents per kWh on their electric bill.
Now you can support renewable energy and share in the power of the sun without the hassle of ownership. Find out more about how to get solar power to your home from Whitewater Valley REMC. My co-op. My Solar. No problem.
The New Castle solar site was the first of our cooperative’s ten 1MW arrays to be constructed in southern Indiana. These 10 solar sites generate enough combined electricity to power approximately 1,500 homes throughout our cooperative’s service territory.
