Sun Power for Homes

Memberservices greenservices sunpowerforhomes 1380x776

Jackson EMC supports using reliable renewable energy. We can help you decide if solar energy is a good fit for your home.

Solar-powered systems are a clean, safe and renewable energy source. They help conserve natural resources and can reduce the environmental impact of energy production.

For the average member, a solar energy system produces 20-50% of their annual energy needs, depending on the size and orientation of the system and the energy requirements of the home.

Is a Solar System Right for You?

Before installing a solar system, answer a few questions:

  • Are you a Jackson EMC member?
  • Do you own your home and property?
  • Does a large portion of your roof face south?
  • Is your roof in good condition?
  • Does your property get full sun or minimal shade from trees, buildings and other structures?
  • Is your property free from deed restrictions on solar energy systems?
  • Can you afford to purchase a solar power system?

If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, a solar-powered system may be right for you.
