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

Whitewater Valley REMC 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, Whitewater Valley REMC 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, including the New Castle solar array closest to us.

Participating members at Whitewater Valley REMC can choose between a fixed monthly rate and a one-time upfront payment. Enroll

Fixed rate

Participating members will be charged a fixed rate of [$0.01], on their monthly electric bill, 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. Then the participating member is credited 5.5 cents per kWh on their electric bill.

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.

Solar Production

Now you can support renewable energy and share in the power of the sun without the hassle of ownership. Find out more about how to get solar power to your home from Whitewater Valley REMC. My co-op. My Solar. No problem.


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.
