Community Solar Project
Benton PUD plans to break ground in April on the first local community solar project. The cost of the project is covered by participants. To participate, customers can purchase units for $250 each. In return, participants receive a proportionate credit on their electricity bill for solar power produced by the project as well as the state energy production credits.
