Renewable resources continue to grow in popularity. Pioneer offers options to allow members to use green energy. Renewable sources — including solar — make up approximately five percent of Pioneer’s overall power supply. Therefore, Pioneer wants to make sure our members are aware of our processes and options when it comes to solar energy.
It’s important that you work with your cooperative before purchasing equipment or signing a contract with a solar vendor to determine what type of system works best for you, your lifestyle, and your utility provider. Interconnecting a solar array with Pioneer’s distribution system requires an application, as well as contractual agreements.
Please contact Pioneer at 800.762.0997 or firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
OurSolar is a community solar program that offers one of the cleanest and most affordable renewable energy sources available. By grouping solar panels together, costs can be shared, power output can be maximized, and hassles of rooftop installation can be avoided.
Members participate for less than $1 per month, per panel. Please contact us at email@example.com or 800.762.0997 to be placed on a waiting list.
OurSolar is provided by Buckeye Power on behalf of Pioneer Electric Cooperative and its members.
Buckeye Power added a new 2.66 megawatt solar installation located in Hancock County, Ohio to the OurSolar program in 2022 and combined Pioneer’s solar array in Urbana with the rest of the state cooperatives’ existing solar panels.
You can make a difference through the EnviroWatts® program. EnviroWatts is a voluntary, earth-friendly and inexpensive way to produce electricity and support renewable energy. With each $2 block of EnviroWatts you purchase, you can be assured that 100-kilowatt hours of electricity were produced from renewable energy sources.
