NNEC Offers Renewable Energy Credits 

For members interested in seeing the development and expansion of renewable energy sources, NNEC offers a 100% Renewable Energy Attributes Electric Service Rider (Schedule RE-1). This Rider is available on a voluntary basis as a “companion rate” to any residential customer for the entire month’s electricity usage.  After a member signs up for the 100% Renewable Energy Attributes Electric Service Rider, an additional charge of $0.015 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) is added to the monthly bill. This is a sell-at-cost charge with no profit or added fee for NNEC. 

For every 1,000 kWh sold, NNEC will purchase a Renewable Energy Certificate from Old Dominion Electric Cooperative (ODEC). Renewable Energy Certificates are produced every time a renewable source (windmill, solar array, hydro, etc.) generates 1,000 kWh. At this time all Renewable Energy Credits offered by ODEC will be sourced from one or more of the following:

  • the Armenia Mountain Wind Farm in north-central Pennsylvania (Tioga and Bradford counties);
  • the Stony Creek Wind Farm in south-western Pennsylvania (Somerset county); and
  • the Criterion Wind farm in Western Maryland (under construction in Garrett county).

Community Solar

NNEC is offering its residential members the opportunity to subscribe to more solar energy through the Cooperative Sunshare community-solar program.  This is a great way to use solar generated power at your residence without having to install or maintain solar panels on your property.

With Cooperative Sunshare, a dedicated block of 50 kWh solar generated power can be purchased per month for $5.46 (October through May), and $5.95 (June through September).  These rates are fixed through July 2021 and will appear under the line-item “community solar” on participating members’ bills.  Members may subscribe to additional solar blocks (subject to availability) and can cancel their community-solar subscription at any time without penalty by giving NNEC at least 30-days notice.  The solar power being offered through the Cooperative Sunshare program is produced at two Virginia solar facilities - the 20 megawatt Cherrydale solar farm in Northampton County, and the 10 megawatt Clarke County solar farm in White Post.  The electricity is provided to co-op members through a power purchase agreement with Old Dominion Electric Cooperative, of which NNEC is a member.  To view the Community Solar tariff, click here.
