In August of 2013, DEC energized its Bruce A. Henry Solar Energy Farm near Georgetown. The farm is capable of producing enough power for 500 homes and will help the Co-op meet state requirements for the generation or clean, renewable energy. The facility was built with solar panels manufactured by Motech Americas in Newark, Del. Currently, more than ten percent of the Co-op’s energy comes from renewable sources. This chart shows how much energy is being produced at the solar farm each month. The average Co-op home uses about 1,000 kWh per month.
