Green Power EMC Launches Solar Schools Program

June 2006 - Green Power EMC, a partnership of 28 Georgia electric membership cooperatives serving more than three million Georgia homes, businesses, factories and farms, has launched a Sun Power for Schools program, under which participating EMCs partner with a middle school or high school to install a 1-kW solar photovoltaic (PV) system and provide on-line data monitoring in the classroom. Five systems have been installed to date with 10 additional schools to receive systems by the end of the year.

Under the Green Power EMC program, customers can make voluntary purchases of renewable energy in 150-kWh monthly blocks for $3 to $5, depending upon the participating cooperative, with the power supplied from two landfill generating plants and a low-impact hydroelectric facility.
