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.
Call 423-648-1372 to order today.
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.

Yes, we register our system’s RECs with the North American Renewables Registry (NAR). NAR ensures that the power from our solar array is verified by an independent third party. (NAR is an independent third party that verifies our solar array’s production and its RECs.)
Yes, customers who buy panel leases and licenses automatically get the environmental benefits, including offsets. Other offsets available for purchase come from panels that have not been bought or leased, and they are available on a first come, first served basis.
Credits will depend on total generation of the array for the month prior and will be calculated at the current residential electric rate. For example, if your panel generates 37 kWh and the current residential electric is about 10.3¢ per kWh with fuel cost adjustment (view the current electric rate, or call 423-648-1372), you would receive a credit of $3.81 per panel. What’s nice about this is that if the residential rate goes up, your Solar Share bill credits become more valuable as they automatically adjust as the electric rate rises or falls.
Credits and Charges will appear as separate line items on the customer bill.
No. Your monthly credit is calculated from the total amount of energy produced at the array divided by the total number of panels.
Absolutely. Solar Share can offer a host of benefits to our commercial customers and EPB is offering a similar tiered incentive program. Interested commercial customers can call 423-648-1372 and our customer care representatives can connect you with a personal consultant.
When you purchase offsets, the money goes toward the capital costs of installing the Solar Share array.
