June 2013 - Cherryland Electric Cooperative recently launched Solar Up North (SUN) Alliance, a community solar program offering locals a 25-year lease on a 235-watt solar panel for $470. The program allows community members opportunity to support renewable energy, while not bearing the full cost of installation. Upon leasing a panel, the lessee will receive approximately $2 in credits on their monthly electric bill and an initial $75 Energy Optimization rebate for each panel leased. The cooperative has installed 80 panels at its headquarters and has plans to install two more arrays of 72 panels each.
