Renewable Energy Options


At A&N Electric Cooperative we are looking for ways to help you go green. In addition to energy saving tips and ideas, the cooperative offers several options for using or purchasing renewable energy.

The cooperative is ready to work with you in connecting your home solar array or wind turbine to the distribution system through our net metering program.

Net Metering

What is Net Metering?

Net metering allows A&N Electric Cooperative members to interconnect approved renewable generation systems to the electrical distribution system and to generate some of their own electricity. The output of the renewable generation system offsets the electricity that would have been delivered by the cooperative. Common examples of net metering installations include solar panels on a home or a wind turbine at a school.

Cooperative Seeks Approval for Community Solar Pilot Program

In late January, A&N Electric Cooperative (ANEC), along with three fellow Virginia electric cooperatives, began seeking formal approval for a pilot program to provide additional solar energy to interested members. If approved, the Community Solar Pilot Project will allow members of the cooperative to subscribe to solar energy generated from two facilities in Virginia.
