SunPath Community Solar
As your trusted energy provider, REMC is proud to offer members a solar energy option beyond the traditional, on-site home installation. Participating in community solar is a way for members to utilize locally produced, clean energy to help offset their carbon footprint. And because it’s a community-shared resource, participants can get the exact same benefits on their electric bills for a more affordable price.
$2.85 per panel
$491 per panel
|Members pay a monthly per-panel subscription fee and receive a credit for the amount of the energy produced on the same bill. A one-year commitment is required, which renews annually.|
Members pay a one-time, up-front fee per panel for the rights to that panel’s energy output. A credit for the energy produced will post to each bill for the next 20 years.
How Does It Work?
Instead of installing, maintaining and retaining ownership of their own solar energy system, members subscribe to the energy produced by the SunPath Community Solar panels. Participants are then credited monthly for energy produced by their panels based on the cooperative’s published Solar Energy Credit at the time of billing. Subscriptions are available exclusively to Randolph EMC members on a first-come, first-served basis and members may subscribe to any number of available panels they wish.
