Cooperative Solar One leading the way with more to come! 

EKPC and its 16 owner-member electric cooperatives plan to license solar panels to co-op members from not only one solar farm but two additional solar farms.  Both solar farm construction projects are set to start in mid-2026 and commissioned in mid-2027.  

Cooperative Solar Farm Two – Fayette

A 387-acre solar farm in eastern Fayette County, Ky., along Interstate 64 will generate 40 megawatts of electricity, enough to serve the annual electricity needs of 4,560 typical Kentucky homes.  Learn more 

Cooperative Solar Farm Three – Marion

A 635-acre solar farm in Marion County, Ky., north of Lebanon. This solar farm will generate 96 megawatts of electricity, enough to serve the annual electricity needs of 10,940 typical Kentucky homes.  Learn more

Currently, co-op members receive credit on their electric bills for their proportionate share of energy produced from Cooperative Solar Farm One. The arrangement is known as Cooperative Solar.  Check out Cooperative Solar's Facebook page, How solar works, and a Q&A Informational Sheet

With a one-time payment of $460, participants will receive the benefits of renewable energy without having to install or maintain facilities on their own property. Their monthly electric bills will be credited for the value of the energy and capacity associated with their licensed share of the solar farm.
