North Carolina Coop’s Solar Farm to Provide Benefits to Members

Pee Dee Electric Cooperative has announced plans to install a 100-Kw community solar farm adjacent to its corporate headquarters.  The solar farm will produce about 150,000-kWh of electricity annually, and members of Pee Dee Electric will be able to purchase individual panels and sell the power produced by the panels back to the cooperative.  Members who participate in the project will receive a credit on their electric bills for their prorated share of the solar farm’s output.  The cooperative hopes to complete construction on the solar farm by the end of 2014. The Daily Journal has the full story here.
