The Butler Rural Community Solar program allows cooperative members to purchase subscriptions to solar panels. Subscribers get the benefits of solar energy without upfront costs and without having solar panels located at their home. Generating energy with solar power creates no pollution or carbon dioxide emissions and is a clean, renewable, and sustainable alternative energy source.

Our first community solar array is located on the corner of Lanes Mill and Stillwell Beckett roads across from our office. Construction for the 228 panel array was completed in February 2017. Our newest array was completed in July 2022 and is located in Findlay, Ohio. This larger array, built together with Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives, has 342 panels available for our members.


Benefits of Community Solar

  • No upfront costs
  • No maintenance costs
  • No installation barriers, such as trees, roof size, or house orientation/location
  • Economies of scale


Cooperative members and the public are encouraged to stop by the local community solar array to view the array and the accompanying signs at any time. If you would like a tour inside the solar array, please contact the cooperative to schedule a time to do so during normal business hours. The community solar array is locked at all times for the safety of our members and the public.
