Hoosier Energy’s solar program consists of 10 1 megawatt (MW) solar arrays placed along highly visible roadways across member service territories. 

Collectively, the solar sites will provide approximately 2 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy annually for the 300,000 consumers served by Hoosier Energy’s 18-member distribution cooperatives.  

Harrison REMC is excited to be a part of the Hoosier Energy My Solar Program.

My Solar provides electricity through solar energy without any installation on your home or business. Members have access to easy, affordable solar power no matter where they live.

Rather than installing these solar panels on your home or business, Harrison REMC will keep and maintain your panels at one of our solar arrays. Participating members will receive an energy credit on their monthly electric bill of 5.5 cents per kWh generated. Each panel will generate 450-500 kWhs annually.

What are the benefits of the program?


Our remote solar arrays require no roof installation, providing you with a hassle-free way to access solar energy. 


My Solar provides inexpensive options for investing in renewable energy, while the upfront and ongoing costs of home installations remain high.

The My Solar program gives you access to green power without the hassle of financing, roof improvements, shading issues, insurance, permitting, system maintenance, and any other issues that have kept you from installing solar panels on your property.

Here’s how it works:

Participating members have two options:

  • The five-year plan allows members to pay $125 per panel (or 10 monthly payments of $12.50) for a panel. Members can lease up to 12 panels.
  • The 10-year plan allows members to pay $250 per panel (or 10 monthly payments of $25) for a panel. Members can lease up to 12 panels.

One panel produces approximately 9,000 kilowatt-hours over 20 years or approximately 38 kWh per month. Energy generated from the panels will be shown as a line item credit on your monthly bill.
