Solar power has become increasingly popular in the last few years and many of our members have expressed interest in installing solar panels on their property. What if we told you there was an easier way to “go green?”
That’s right! By participating in SWRE’s Community Solar Program, you get the benefits of solar power without the expense of installing, maintaining or insuring panels on your property.
SWRE has two Community Solar Farms located in Frederick (Highway 183 & Airport Road) and Vernon (Center Drive near the Madison Crossing Apartments). Members can purchase a share (equal to one panel) in quantities of 1-25. After the shares are purchased, participating members will receive a credit on their monthly SWRE bill based on their portion of the field’s production.
SWRE has approximately 1,340 shares available for purchase. The contract period for Community Solar is 25 years. Participants do not own any of the panels or infrastructure.
