MTE strives to be responsible stewards of the environment for future generations while providing reliable energy today.
MTE’s Cooperative Solar program allows members to experience the benefits of a solar PV system without the long-term commitment and expense of building their own system. The one-megawatt solar field is owned and maintained by MTE in College Grove, Tennessee. Members who participate can claim the power generation of a block of solar panels (5.5 panels) for $20 per month and subscribe to one or two blocks each month. The member’s monthly bill shows how much energy those panels generated and any credit received from that generation.
The co-op’s Green Switch 100 program gives members the option to offset 100 percent of their electricity usage with renewable power while paying just one additional cent per kilowatt-hour. This month-to-month program offers flexibility and sustainability while providing an easy solution to meet members’ goals.
MTE also offers a free solar consultation service, ProSolar, due to the rising number of members investing in solar energy installations. Members can speak with MTE’s in-house solar experts to learn if solar can fit their specific needs and what to look for before making a long-term commitment.
