Solar Energy At Duck River Electric

A Tennessee electric company hopes to make investing in solar technology affordable to the ordinary investor. Duck River Electric Membership Cooperation in Shelbyville cut the ribbon on a new solar farm Wednesday afternoon. The solar farm has 108 solar panels, creating 216 investment opportunities. Investors can buy a half panel for $600. The solar farm is across the street from an elementary school, a middle school and a high school in Shelbyville. DREMC hopes teachers will bring their students to the farm to learn about the future of energy.
