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.

No, not at this time.
There are two ways to do this:
Equipment and wiring repairs, equipment inspections, cleaning of the panels as needed, electronic monitoring of the equipment, and administrative costs associated with the operation of the site.
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.
This depends on several factors — primarily the participation of our customers in this project. If the demand for local solar energy generation exceeds this installation, EPB will work with TVA to determine if we can install additional solar generation.
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.
