Kenergy’s wholesale power provider, Big Rivers Electric Corporation (BREC), has recently implemented a Solar Education Center that is designed to bring hands-on solar power information to western Kentucky. Their goal is to provide local cooperative members, schools, and the public with better insight on how solar energy works in our region and a detailed breakdown of the technology’s costs. Members will be able to view real-time data.
There are seven educational arrays in the BREC system, and they are the result of planning and cooperation between BREC and its three Member-Owner cooperatives: Kenergy Corporation, Meade County Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation, and Jackson Purchase Energy Corporation.
These arrays give our Members the opportunity to view solar technology up close, learning about its construction, production, and costs. Located in McCracken, Marshall, Livingston, Henderson, Daviess, Meade, and Breckinridge Counties, the seven arrays generate a combined 165,000 kWh each year. That’s enough energy to power 12 homes.
