Community Solar

Lake Region Electric Cooperative’s first community solar project is sold. We want to thank all of the participating members for their support of renewable solar energy. If you think LREC should build a second community solar, let us know and send us a message through our Sign Me Up page link below.

Lake Region Community Solar provided LREC members an opportunity to purchase renewable solar energy at an affordable price. Benefits of the program include:

  • The monthly electric bill is reduced by the number of kWh’s the panel(s) produce and the bill credits are priced at the current LREC retail rate. As LREC rates rise, so do the solar bill credits.
  • Replace fossil fuels used to generate electricity with your own solar energy.
  • Setting your price of electricity for a portion of your needs for the next 20 years.
  • All renewable energy credits (REC’s) and the potential benefits associated with renewable solar energy belong to you.

What People are Saying About Solar

“We have a seasonal lake home and like that the kWh credits that our panel produces in the winter will be carried forward so that we can use them during the summer.”

“In a few years I plan to sell my home and I will give the panel to my son. By then, regular electric rates will be higher than the solar and it should be a valuable gift.”

“The community solar is a good idea. We need to move away from fossil fuels to renewable energy.”

“I like that I can buy a single panel and just get my feet wet. Someday we might consider buying another.”

“We’ve been talking about putting in solar panels at our home but this seems to be an easier way to do it.”
