KUB Community Solar

KUB is constructing Knoxville's first community solar array, in partnership with TVA and the City of Knoxville.

How it Works 

  • KUB owns, operates, and maintains the 1-megawatt shared community solar array, housed on 3 acres of land at the City of Knoxville's Public Works facility
  • Customers sign up for a portion of the array through a monthly subscription 
  • Subscribers are credited for their portion of the renewable energy produced

The Benefits of Community Solar

Supports Local Solar: By participating in a shared array, Community Solar programs allow participants to work together to support local solar projects in our community.

Increases Access to Solar: Community Solar programs don’t require any equipment to be installed at the customer’s home or business, which makes it a great option for customers who may be unable to install solar panels at their homes or businesses.

Reduces Emissions: 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.

Program Details

KUB Community Solar is scheduled to go online this winter, with $5 shares available for residential and commercial customers. 

For one share: 

  • Customers will pay $5 monthly 
  • Customers will receive an average of $3.61 in monthly credits
  • Approximately 640 kwh of solar energy will be generated annually
