Bright Options Solar

The Prairie Power, Inc. owned Shelby Solar Farm became operational in the fall of 2015.

Cooperative members can now enjoy participating in solar renewable energy without the risks, hassles, and costs of having solar panels on their roofs.

Prairie Power, Inc. (PPI), an electric generation and transmission cooperative headquartered in Springfield, Illinois, is offering to its 10 member distribution cooperatives the opportunity for their member-consumers to purchase solar-generated electricity through the Bright Options Solar program. Bright Options Solar allows any member of a participating cooperative the opportunity to buy blocks of solar energy generated from two 500-kilowatt solar farms operated by PPI subsidiaries.

The Shelby Solar Farm is located in Shelbyville, Illinois and the Spoon River Solar Farm is located near Astoria, Illinois. In the fall of 2015, both solar farms became operational. These two solar farms are harvesting energy from the sun to provide an opportunity for homeowners to receive some of their electricity from the sun.

Under Bright Options Solar, a member agrees to purchase blocks of solar-generated energy, at an added cost, through their participating electric cooperative. There are three purchasing options available, namely blocks of 200, 400 and 600 kilowatt-hours (kWh).
