To provide for maximum member participation in renewable energy, subscriptions to the solar panels in our Community Solar Gardens are now available for $3.50/month each.
In return, you will receive a monthly credit for the amount of energy the panel(s) generate; the credit amount will vary month-to-month based upon the actual energy generated.
No commitment is required, and there is no limit on the number of panels to which you can subscribe. This is a great opportunity for members who want to support solar energy, but are unable to install solar panels at their residences. This option requires no up-front investment or ongoing maintenance costs.
BEMC’s two Community Solar Gardens are located on Highway 17 in Bolivia and at the Peacock Substation in Chadbourn. There are a total of 738 panels, 170 of which are already spoken for by members, leaving 568 available at the $3.50/ month subscription rate.
Our Community Solar Gardens are part of the A Brighter Future initiative to achieve, along with other North Carolina electric cooperatives, a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 from 2005 levels and net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
