305-kW Community Solar Array Offers Co-Op Members Panels

July 2014 - As of June 1, 2014, output from the 305-kW, 1,001-panel Vernon Electric Community Solar Farm located in Westby, WI, built by Colorado-based Clean Energy Collective and Wisconsin-based Vernon Electric Cooperative (VEC) became available for purchase to home-owners in the town. After taking advantage of federal tax credits and a $71 rebate provided by the VEC, the cost was reduced to $600 per 305-watt panel or about $2 per watt. Panels were available to members of the co-op, who can purchase up to as many as would offset their power use.
