Brighten Up Your World by Joining NLI Community Solar

By Elissa Glassman

In June 2017, Northern Lights launched the first community solar project in Idaho. The project was originally conceived by NLI’s Board of Directors and given the go-ahead based on the level of interest and desire to support solar shown by many co-op members.

NLI’s power comes from the Bonneville Power Administration and Lake Creek dam, which is owned by NLI. The community solar project is a step in
examining additional renewable energy sources.

As an NLI member, you can be a part of the community solar project. Fifty-nine of the original 386 units are available for purchase. Members receive
energy credits based on the project’s production. The subscription cost is $300 per unit, with a maximum of five units per member. Members can finance the cost over 12 months on their electric bill.
