Top 4 Reasons to Enroll in ourSolar

Tri-County EMC’s Cooperative Solar Program, ourSolar, gives you the opportunity to have solar energy for your home without installing panels on your property. The energy for ourSolar comes from our 1 MW solar array in Putnam County. Energy produced by your block in the array will be credited to your bill. Here are the top reasons why you should consider enrolling in ourSolar:

You’ll Help The Environment: Solar is a renewable form of energy, unlike coal, so as long as there is sunlight, solar energy can be produced. By signing up for ourSolar, you are leaving a smaller carbon footprint by helping reduce the use of coal and other non-renewable energy sources. 
 
You Won’t Have Holes In Your Roof: Want solar power, but not sure if you’ll be in your house for the foreseeable future? Solar panels can cause issues when trying to sell a home. Some home buyers don’t want panels. And removing the panels will come at a high cost and leave damage to your roof. 

Lower Cost than Rooftop Panels: 
Installing solar panels on your property can cost thousands and thousands of dollars. With ourSolar, you’ll get solar energy for your home for just $25 per block of energy. 

There’s No Hassle: 
For just $25 per month, you can have the solar energy produced by a 1.22kW block. If you try it a few months and find out the program isn’t for you, just give us a call and we’ll cancel your subscription with no additional charge.
