Work underway on Kiamichi Electric's 950-panel solar array K


iamichi Electric Cooperative (KEC) is showing its sunny side as construction begins on the co-op's


950-panel solar array. KEC's participation in the solar project reflects a growing consensus among electric utilities that renewable fuels are not only important but necessary to curb peak electricity demand.


KEC is partnering with wholesale power provider Western Farmer's Electric Cooperative (WFEC) on the project. The KEC solar array is one of eleven Oklahoma- based electric co-op solar arrays to be built and maintained by WFEC. Once complete, each electric co-op has the choice to market the solar power as they wish. Some co-ops offer their members the opportunity to support the clean energy effort by subscribing to solar panels for a set fee. This fee is offset by a bill credit based the solar energy produced.


This option, known as "community solar," allows co-op members to support clean energy without the expense of owning and maintaining their own rooftop panels.


Once complete, the KEC solar array is estimated to produce 418,000 kilowatts per year, or enough to power 25-30 homes. Because the long term production capacity remains unknown, KEC is adopting a "wait and see" stance on offering community solar to members.


In the meantime, KEC's solar garden is slowly growing with the first panel erected in early September. The project is located behind KEC's new office building. It is expected to be up and running by the end of the year. Q


For more information on KEC's solar project, please call your co-op at 800-888-2731.
