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. At most, customers may only license enough panels to cover the average of their power usage over the last 12 months or 100 panels whichever is less.
All of our offsets come from EPB’s solar installation on Holtzclaw Avenue.
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:
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.
Yes, EPB is still offering TVA’s Green Power Switch and Southeastern RECs.
Green Power Switch charges $4 for 150 kWh of a mix of alternative generation, mainly wind from across TVA’s service territory. EPB Solar Share offsets are $5 for 100 kWh of local, Chattanooga-made, 100% solar power.
