Snapping Shoals EMC's Cooperative Solar project is now producing electricity.

Our recently completed 2.7 AC megawatt solar project gives residential members the ability to purchase up to four 1-kilowatt blocks of solar electricity for $20 each per month.

The facility is located at the intersection of Hwy. 11 and Hwy. 142, adjacent to our Pony Express substation.

Watch below to see how the Cooperative Solar program works!

Cooperative solar projects allow access to consumers who might otherwise be excluded from owning and installing their own solar electricity generation. Obstacles like upfront costs, improper roof orientation, excessive roof shading, restrictive subdivision covenants or landlord prohibitions are frequent barriers to homeowners and renters who want to install solar systems.

As a Snapping Shoals EMC customer, you can receive the output from the solar facility according to your needs and interest.

The energy output of your portion will be calculated and credited to your bill every month. This solar energy will offset energy produced from traditional fuels.

Cooperative Solar Participation

Don't miss out on solar opportunity! Here's how you can participate!

PRICING AND ENERGY PRODUCTION Blocks of solar electricity are $20 each per month. Each block will receive 1/2,700th of the output of the project and is expected to produce between 135 and 195 kilowatt-hours of solar energy monthly. Energy output will vary due to the sun’s angle, the time of year, the number of cloudy days in the month and other factors.

AVAILABILITY There is a limit of four blocks per member. Only residential Snapping Shoals EMC members can participate.

SIGN UP To sign up, call us at 770-786-3484. We are not able to take online requests at this time. If blocks sell out, a waiting list will be established.

BILLING Kilowatt-hours produced will offset the same number of kilowatt-hours on each participant’s monthly bill.

LENGTH OF COMMITMENT There is no upfront cost, no long-term lease, no maintenance and no contract. You can discontinue your solar energy commitment at any time by notifying us. If you leave the program, Snapping Shoals EMC cannot guarantee there will be availability if you decide to rejoin. Requests to rejoin may only be granted 18 months after previous cancellations.
