    FAQs

    Green Switch charges $2 for 200 kWh of a mix of alternative generation, mainly wind from across TVA's service territory. EPB Solar Share credits are $5 for 100 kWh of local, Chattanooga-made, 100% solar power.

    Charges will appear the month after you sign up with credits appearing the month after that. For example, if you contact EPB and sign up on July 15, 2020 for a panel, you will see the CHARGE on your AUGUST invoice (the next month and all following months). The CREDIT will appear on your SEPTEMBER invoice (approximately 2 months after you sign up and all following months). Why? During the first month after your purchase, your panel is generating electricity. That generation is accumulated throughout the month and then credited on your next bill. If a customer opts for the multi-year license, this is a one-time only charge.

    Our RECs that are available for purchase have been generated by panels that have not been bought or leased yet. They’re available on a first come, first serve basis. These RECs are registered with and tracked by the North American Renewables Registry. After two years, these RECs are retired on a rolling basis.

    Joining Solar Share is like joining a community swimming pool. You share the benefits with your neighbors without the maintenance, liability and other hassles of installing your own. Plus, you can license as many panels as you want without any long term commitments. That makes Solar Share an affordable and convenient way to participate in solar generation.

    EPB Solar Share is a community-based solar program that offers an easy option for EPB customers to participate in renewable energy through solar power. Located along Holtzclaw Avenue across from Warner Park, the Solar Share array is a partnership between EPB and TVA. Through Solar Share, EPB residential and commercial electric power customers have a choice of renewable power that dramatically lowers the barriers to entry for participating in solar power generation.

    Each solar panel within the array is estimated to produce approximately 37 kWh per month, but this amount can be higher or lower based on time of year and weather. 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).

    Yes, we are still offering TVA's Green Power Switch, now known as Green Switch.
