Solar Power

Power outage reminder for solar users
Remember: do not run your solar system during a power outage. Disconnect your solar system before using a generator. It could damage the inverter.

 

Co-op commits to solar power initiative

In Spring 2018, Clay Electric installed 18-kW solar systems at its Orange Park and Palatka District Offices to offset energy consumption at the offices and provide members with real-time data and accurate information about solar systems.

The public can view what the Orange Park system is producing by clicking here. Information on the Palatka system can be accessed here.

The systems are about twice the size of a normal household system. Seventy-two panels were attached to the roofs of each district office, which can generate more than 150 kWh daily when the sun is shining.

To learn more about solar energy, read the links below or contact the co-op’s Energy Services Division by emailing gstanley@clayelectric.com or calling 1-800-771-2325, ext. 8366.

Clay Electric does not install or supply solar systems, but only provides an interconnection to the electric utility grid.

Notify Clay Electric if you receive power from an alternative energy source

The State of Florida requires that Clay Electric keep track of the amount of electricity received via customer-owned alternative energy sources. At present, the co-op has 750 members who own renewable (solar) systems that generate electricity for their homes. These systems generate electricity for home use and excess power is returned to Clay's distribution system. The co-op records, using a special meter, the amount of electricity returned to the co-op's system.

If you own or plan to have one of these systems installed, please make sure you've signed an Interconnection Agreement with Clay Electric. The State of Florida requires that all customers who have systems that are or will be connected to the electrical grid have an Interconnect agreement signed with the receiving utility. It is the member's responsibility to notify Clay that they're operating or plan to operate an alternative energy system. This is important for safety reasons and for billing purposes, and to ensure the member receives proper credit for putting power back into the co-op's distribution system.

Contact the co-op's Energy Services Division for more information.
