The PV installations are spread across 15 sites, each one of up to 998kW generation capacity. Construction begins this year, with the projects pencilled in for completion before the year’s end.

“Once completed, these installations will allow all interested members to directly participate in a solar program that will provide the Cooperative with a cost-effective rate for all its member-owners,” PEC vice president of power and energy services Ingmar Sterzing said.

RES Distributed was formed to offer “local energy solutions”, the company’s website says, working with regional utilities to provide community installations. The division was launched in September last year.

A recent report from analysis firm Navigant Research said the US market for community solar could be worth as much as US$2.5 billion a year by 2020.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
