Carroll Electric and Buckeye Power are helping co-op members throughout the state take advantage of locally produced renewable energy - without the personal hassle and costs.
Through a community solar program call Our Solar, Buckeye Power - Ohio's generation and transmission cooperative - has built solar panel arrays at several co-op locations throughout Ohio, bringing more emission-free energy to Ohio's electric cooperatives. Carroll Electric is one of the sites, with a 50-kilowatt array installed in 2017.
How much does it cost? For the average members, only 35 cents per year. OurSolar reflects Carroll Electric and Buckeye Power's balanced approach to electricity generation. While most of the power supplied to Carroll Electric will continue to be produced by coal-fired generation that is among the cleanest of its kind in the world.
