KUB is constructing Knoxville's first community solar array, in partnership with TVA and the City of Knoxville.
Community Solar programs allow community members to voluntarily participate in solar projects through subscription to solar shares. Programs like these are a great way for customers who may be unable to invest in solar panels at their homes or businesses to support renewable energy.
The City of Knoxville will house the 1-megawatt array on 3 acres of land at its Public Works facility. The array will generate enough renewable energy annually to avoid approximately 964 metric tons of CO2e emissions, which is equal to saving more than 100,000 gallons of gasoline.
KUB Community Solar is scheduled to go online soon, and information about how to participate will be published here as it is available.
