Easy, affordable solar power. No matter where you live.

RushShelby Energy is excited to introduce you to My Solar, a cooperative 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 you live.

Rather than installing these solar panels on your home or business, RushShelby Energy will keep and maintain your panels at one of our solar arrays. Participating members will see the change on their monthly electric bill, with each panel generating ≈450-500 kWhs annually.

Big impact

Energy produced through My Solar will be clean and sustainable, helping you to reduce your personal carbon footprint in energy consumption.

No maintenance

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



Low cost

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

Easy, affordable solar power. No matter where you live. Share in the output from 10 solar arrays in southern Indiana.

Participating members at RushShelby Energy can choose between a monthly payment plan and an upfront payment. Enroll

Monthly payment plan

Participating members will be charged a monthly payment of [$0.01] for every kWh that is produced by their chosen amount of panels.

Upfront payment 

Participating members pay a one-time upfront payment of $500 to receive the production from a solar panel for 20 years. On each monthly electric bill, the participating member is credited 5.5 cents per each kWh produced by their reserved panel.

Generation varies

Generation from solar panels varies on a monthly basis, with the highest generation occurring in the summer months and the lowest in the winter months. Each panel averages approximately 500 kWh of production per year.

Solar Production

Hoosier Energy’s solar program consists of ten 1MW solar arrays placed along highly visible roadways across member service territories. Collectively, the solar sites will provide approximately 2,000,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy annually for the 300,000 consumers served by Hoosier Energy’s 18-member distribution cooperatives.


The New Castle solar site was the first of our cooperative’s ten 1MW arrays to be constructed in southern Indiana. These 10 solar sites generate enough combined electricity to power approximately 1,500 homes throughout our cooperative’s service territory.
