CDE’s Niche

CDE’s Niche

Commercial-scale facilities

Clustered in close proximity

Who want clean, predictably less-expensive electricity
Who can’t or don’t want to buy their own solar and batteries
In economically-distressed communities

Our Projects

  • Our projects planned for Jackson
    1. Community Solar: A New Model for TVA’s Service Area
      1. TVA’s programs, regulations, contracts, & rates severely restrict solar adoption
        • Acquiring their own solar is uneconomical for institutions and most businesses
        • Solar farms are limited in size and are paid very little for the energy they sell to TVA
        • Community solar stymied by the inability to use TVA’s grid to distribute the electricity to users
      2. But we have discovered a way to make solar available to parts of a city like Jackson
      3. We will build moderate-sized solar facilities on land we own or lease close to institutions & businesses that are heavy users of electricity.
      4. These solar facilities can be developed economically, due to scale & tax advantages.
      5. The users draw electricity from our solar facilities during the day as needed.
      6. These institutions & businesses save substantially on their overall electricity costs.
      7. Their solar rates never go up, unlike TVA’s rates, which certainly will in the future.
      8. They continue to draw the rest of their electricity from TVA (at night, for example).
      9. TVA buys our excess solar energy, helping keep costs down.
      10. Everyone gets the benefits of this massive switch to fully renewable, solar energy
      11. We handle maintenance
      12. No entanglements for users when they move or sell their property

The Future Is Here

Other ways we can help:

  • Help establish a solar program to train people to work in the solar industry: NABCEP certification, etc.
  • Our solar experts can help design the curriculum and ensure NABCEP certification
  • We can offer some instruction online or by video conferencing
  • We can contribute to the costs of setting up such a program
  • Contributions of funds to the college
