Celebrate the Earth Through our Renewable Energy Programs
Nolin RECC is proud to provide clean, renewable energy that is delivered more reliably and affordably than ever before.

This year the renewable programs from Nolin and Kentucky’s Touchstone Energy Cooperatives have reached new heights because of Cooperative Solar Farm One. Located in Clark
County, this 60-acre solar farm is one of the state’s largest sun-to-electricity projects, featuring more than 32,000 panels. It produces enough electricity to supply all the power for about 1,000 typical Kentucky homes.
Participants in Cooperative Solar can buy a 25-year license at $460 per panel to support renewable energy, and it’s easy to sign up at www.cooperativesolar.com.
We also offer a program called envirowatts. We started it back in 2003 when we built Kentucky’s first renewable energy plants and used the gas from decaying landfill trash to make electricity. There are now six of these plants in the commonwealth. They are part of an expanded envirowatts program that gives members the option of supporting renewable power generated from wind, water or the sun.
Envirowatts is both environmentally responsible and a cost-efficient way to produce power. For as little as $2.75 a month, you can participate in this program. Learn more at www.envirowattsky.com.
With Earth Day taking place April 22, there’s no better—or easier—way to celebrate our natural treasures than by investing in one of our clean, renewable energy programs. At Nolin, we don’t just talk about taking care of our Kentucky home. We’re doing it.
