The first term of the program is 25 years.
No. Participating in the program entitles the subscriber to a share of the energy output of the array equal to their level of participation in the program. There are no rebates or tax benefits for participation.
If you move to another meter location within Yellowstone Valley Electric Cooperative's (YVEC) service territory, your solar energy credits (or panel purchase) will move with you. If you are moving out of the YVEC service area, the panel output can be transferred to another member at no additional cost.
Everything! We will provide all maintenance and insurance, and ensure that all applicable codes, standards, and regulatory requirements are met at the time of installation and throughout the life of the solar array.
The cost to participate in the Community Solar project is $630 per panel.
Both phases are currently sold out.
Each month the energy produced by the solar array will be measured and equally divided by the total number of panels of the solar array. Each participating member’s account will be credited for the energy production associated with the number of panels in the member’s contract. Solar production will vary from month to month.
Members may purchase the output of multiple solar panels. Initially, members will be limited to 10 panels to give all members an opportunity to participate.
The solar arrays are adjacent to the Co-op headquarters in Huntley, on land owned by the cooperative.
If you are a member of Yellowstone Valley Electric Cooperative, you can particpate.
People who care about the energy they consume are increasingly turning to solar energy for their electrical power. It produces no carbon dioxide emissions; its price is stable and it is abundant.
