Solar power and North Carolina’s electric cooperatives
Cooperative members across North Carolina are increasingly interested in harnessing the power of the sun to power their homes. North Carolina’s electric cooperatives are responding to the changing needs of our members, and we are working to incorporate renewable energy sources to our energy mix while also keeping costs as low as possible.
Solar generation is available only when the sun is shining, but it’s our job to make sure you have reliable, dependable power 24 hours a day, seven days a week, rain or shine, day and night. That’s why we must maintain an infrastructure (the “grid”) to meet energy needs and ensure an uninterrupted flow of energy, regardless of the weather.
