CHEC values clean, renewable energy and as your electric cooperative, we constantly look for ways to take a balanced approach towards energy production and generation. Solar energy is one of the cleanest and most affordable renewable energy sources available. By grouping solar panels together, costs can be shared and power output can be maximized.
By partnering with the North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation, the National Renewable Cooperative Organization, and Hannah Solar, CHEC was able to bring community solar to Hatteras Island in 2015. The 180 panel project helps CHEC comply with North Carolina's renewable energy portfolio standard.
