Frankfort celebrates its first solar farm

Frankfort residents and businesses can now purchase some of their electricity from a solar farm. Local leaders and the Frankfort Power Board celebrated the opening of the city’s first array on Monday. “It does not affect any other ratepayers in our system. No one’s subsidizing this solar. It’ll be directly tied to the people who are buying the power and using the power,” said Jason Delambre, member of Frankfort Power board. Customers will have to buy a subscription to the solar array at $3.96 per month. They will still have a meter and pay for the electricity they use, but they’ll also receive a credit on their bill for however much electricity the solar array produces. Residents can learn more about the program here. The city hopes to obtain 100% of its energy from renewable sources by the end of the decade.
