Interest in renewable energy is growing, but installing solar panels at home is incredibly time-consuming and expensive.

But as a cooperative, we can do it together!

OurSolar is a new initiative from Washington Electric Cooperative. We are building a brand-new solar array at our Marietta office, and the renewable energy produced by it will be added to our overall energy mix.

How much will this cost? For the average member household, only about 35 cents a year.

At Washington Electric Cooperative, we believe in a balanced approach to energy. While most of your electricity will continue to be produced by coal-fired power plants with state-of-the-art environmental controls, the addition of OurSolar reflects our support of economically viable sources of renewable energy.
