Community solar program
Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy. It is the cleanest and most renewable energy sources available in the world. Right here in Indiana, more than 44,000 homes (per seia.org) are powered by solar power. We're excited to help this number to continue to grow.
A few years ago, Northeastern REMC installed a large solar ray right on the property of the headquarters in Columbia City. This project, one of the first in Indiana consists of 160 (315-watt) solar panels. We offer our members the ability to purchase the solar energy output from our large solar structure. This helps members avoid the cost of installation and maintenance or any of the other obstacles in a construction project.
Participation in this community solar project may provide an ideal solution for residential and commercial members who support renewable energy but don’t have a suitable site for solar panels or don’t have the money to invest in a system of their own. To learn more, contact member services and ask for more information.
Northeastern REMC members can now purchase Green Solar Watts our Community Solar Project. If you are interested in solar energy but conditions at your home are not suitable for solar panels, we might have the perfect option for you.
