BEC LAUNCHES SHARES DU SOLEIL PHASE II & APPLIES FOR REAP SOLAR GRANT
Our Beartooth Electric Shared Solar Project is a good fit for our members. The Shares du Soleil project will produce local, renewable energy for the members who want it—members getting electricity from a mid-size solar array, offering a convenient option for members who want to buy carbon-free power. With the energy generated by these panels feeding directly into the cooperative’s distribution system.
Our Shares du Soleil Project offers many benefits for BEC members that have an interest in renewable energy. There is no installation or huge upfront cost, as with rooftop solar. Some co-op members want the benefits of an installed solar system, but don’t want to bear the expense and maintenance of panels at their home. The co-op will handle all the details—site planning, construction, operation and maintenance.
SHARES DU SOLEIL PHASE I
BEC's Shares du Soleil Phase I (60 solar panel output certificates) is SOLD OUT!
