GEC partners with Seminole Electric Cooperative, our wholesale power provider, to help our members benefit from solar energy without the headaches of installing and maintaining solar panels themselves. Located in Hardee County, Florida, Seminole’s new solar facility features more than 8,000 single-axis tracking solar photovoltaic (PV) panels which rotate to follow the movement of the sun throughout the day. The facility can produce a total output of 2.2 megawatts, which has been allocated to Seminole’s nine member cooperatives, including Glades Electric Cooperative.
Don’t be surprised by unexpected issues with a solar project installation. There are many factors to consider so please contact our Engineering Department at (863) 946-6200 BEFORE you sign an agreement with a solar contractor.
