If you’re thinking about adding rooftop solar to your home or business, we encourage you to contact us first. As your trusted energy advisor, we’re here to help as you make energy choices for your home.
We can answer questions you have - that includes helping you understand how the process of adding rooftop solar works and the ins and outs of connecting rooftop solar to our power system.
You’ll need electricity from us on those cold winter mornings when the sun is not shining, as well as at night and on cloudy days. During the times your solar system is producing electricity, you may have excess power that will go onto our grid.
We support renewable energy resources, including solar energy, that make sense for the people we serve. However, these resources must be reliable and affordable. That includes during those times when the sun is not shining, as people with solar still need electricity.
Providing electricity whenever and wherever it is needed is a complex process. Generation, transmission, substations, and distribution assets must be in place to provide service whenever a member needs electricity. Maintenance teams and equipment must be in place to restore power if the system is damaged. A large portion of the costs required to provide electric service are fixed, no matter how much or if any energy is used.
PowerSouth Energy Cooperative, our wholesale power supplier, is pursuing a utility-scale solar project. That effort will diversify our power supply as we add more low- and zero-emission options.
