Roofless Solar Solution
Clean, Roofless Solar Power
Community solar allows NEC Co-op Energy to serve Texas electricity consumers with clean, roofless solar power. The world’s leading community solar provider, Clean Energy Collective (CEC), has partnered with NEC Co-op Energy to bring community-shared solar to south Texas. CEC developed a 700 kW (AC) solar PV facility, giving customers the opportunity to own local clean energy generation through CEC’s roofless solar program. Members who participate in the program see a credit for the electricity produced on their electric bill each month.
About CEC’s Roofless Solar Garden
The 7,000-panel solar garden is located just outside of Orange Grove, Texas. The panels are installed and maintained by Clean Energy Collective. In the event a panel is damage or faulty, the panel is replaced or repaired for free. The single-axis tracker technology follows the sun’s path across the sky, maximizing solar exposure and power generation by as much as 15% over traditional fixed systems.
