Taylor Electric Community Solar

Taylor Electric Coop’s Bright Horizons 100.8 kilowatt community solar project in Medford, WI provided investor members with their first credit on September’s energy bill.  Community solar is a simple, affordable way for individuals and businesses to participate in solar energy.  To purchase a unit costs $945, and each unit has 350 watts of energy-producing capacity.  There are a total of 274 sellable units in the solar garden although nearly two-thirds are sold.  A dashboard that shows the amount of electricity produced by the solar system daily and the amount of coal and carbon dioxide avoided is posted along with frequently asked questions on Taylor Electric Coop’s website.
