The Power of the Sun

Solar energy is an exciting renewable energy source that we expect to increase in popularity over time. Some homeowners in West Tennessee already have photovoltaic panels on their roofs, supplying electricity back into the grid and reducing their utility bills.

“Despite solar’s rise in usage, we’ll always be here for our customers, providing safe and reliable electricity for the communities we serve,” said Ripley Power and Light President and CEO Mike Allmand. “We can work with you if you decide to install solar panels, so you should contact us before signing a contract with a solar developer.”

“A solar company has been aggressively targeting residential customers in our service area with misleading ads on Facebook that offer attractive rebates for installation,” Allmand explained. “They’re telling our customers not to talk to their local power company because we would attempt to talk them out of the deal. That’s just not true, and I caution you to beware of any company that says you don’t need to work with your electric provider.”

“We just ask that you contact us first so you can get all the information you need to make the best decision for your household.”
