Grayson RECC is the first electric cooperative in Kentucky to install a solar electric system at its headquarters. The 10.8 kW solar electric system covers approximately 1,000 square feet. The system has been set up as a demonstrational and educational project. It will help Grayson RECC offset its own electric bill through the production of about 12,900 kWh of electricity each year.
Grayson received system design support and review of contractor proposals from Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED) Grayson RECC partners with MACED’s How$martKY© program to provide energy efficiency retrofits for its customers. MACED’s Energy Efficient Enterprises program also provided Grayson RECC with technical assistance to install and evaluate energy cost savings resulting from operation of its solar electric system.
