Jo-Carroll Energy is excited to launch a new community solar program with interest enrollment for the Apple Canyon Community Solar Project now open.
Members will pay a monthly subscription fee per kWh of production to enroll and receive credits on a per kWh basis (please refer to policy). View Policy here.
Subscriptions are available in 2.5 kW blocks, with up to two subscriptions per member (depending on use), not to be split between meters or locations. Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time.
Availability limited; Subscriptions on a first-come, first serve basis.
Eligibility requirements include:
Residential, single-phase accounts
Power must be supplied by Dairyland Power Cooperative (Districts 1-9)
Member does not already have solar (Rate 13)
This community solar project is made possible due to renewable energy credit (REC) sales through the “Illinois Shines”, the state-administered Adjustable Block Program. Read more about the program at the link below.
The community solar farm is being developed by independent developer, Bluestem Energy Solutions. Bluestem will own and operate the project long term. JCE will purchase 100 percent of the power from the solar farm for the 25-year expected life of the project.
This program is independent of the existing Southview Solar Farm due to specific requirements from the state.
