EPB knows that renewable energy is important to our customers. That’s why we’re teaming up with Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) to construct Chattanooga’s first community solar project, Solar Share.

Solar Share is Chattanooga’s first community solar project. Developed through a partnership between EPB and TVA, Solar Share gives people and businesses an easy and affordable way to participate in green power generation. Think of it like joining a community swimming pool. It’s affordable because you share the cost among all the participants, but you get to fully enjoy the benefits without having to worry about construction, maintenance, or liability.
If you’re interested in purchasing clean, renewable energy, then Solar Share is right for you. You don’t even have to own your home to participate.
Plus, joining the Solar Share community means you’re investing in a brighter future by supporting community-based power generation in the Chattanooga area.

Every 20-year license includes a buyback option if the customer requests it anytime during the 20-year expected life. A schedule of the buyback values will be established and published at the time of purchase.
All of our offsets come from EPB’s solar installation on Holtzclaw Avenue.
Unfortunately, no. The 30% federal residential income tax credit available under Section 25D of the Internal Revenue Code only applies to homeowners making a capital investment to install solar at their home. Fortunately, Solar Share is built on a scale that allows EPB to offer pricing that is very competitive and often lower than federally subsidized rooftop installations.
Each solar panel within the array is estimated to produce approximately 37 kWh per month. Determine the percentage of your home’s energy use you want to receive as a solar credit and multiply that by your average monthly energy use. For example, if you want 25% of your home‘s power use to be solar, and your average use is 1,600 kWh per month, you would license 11 panels (1600 x .25 = 400 ÷ 37 = 10.8)
There are two ways to do this:
Yes, EPB is still offering TVA’s Green Power Switch and Southeastern RECs.
A REC refers to specifically 1 megawatt of electricity’s environmental benefits. Offsets refer to any increment of environmental benefits less than 1 megawatt hour.
