Renewable Energy

South River EMC is as interested in renewable energy as you are, that's why we have such a diversified energy portfolio. Now, there are some types of energy that aren't feasible for central North Carolina, so we do have contracts with some out of state energy producers, like those supplying wind energy. However, we do have several in state producers, such as commercial solar, landfill gas, biodigesters, and hydropower, as well as numerous residential solar programs. Certain applications are eligible for tax credits and you can read more about that here.
