Benefits of Ozarks Natural Energy vs. Rooftop Solar

  Ozarks Natural Energy Rooftop Solar
Cost of Solar Power Price per share promises payback with more than 10 years remaining on panel’s life. Even with rebates, rooftop solar is an extremely expensive option to purchase, install and maintain.
Impact on Home Ozarks Natural Energy makes no impact on your home. It also doesn’t require that you own your home or property as no equipment needs to be installed. There is also no impact on homeowner’s insurance. Installing rooftop solar makes a major impact on a home’s structure. There is also no guarantee of solar power viability, depending on geographic limitations. Rooftop solar can impact homeowner’s insurance.
Installation and Maintenance None; all facility and/or panel maintenance handled by Ozarks Electric Cooperative. The homeowner is responsible for all installation and ongoing maintenance for life of equipment.
Safety There is no safety equipment needed. All power generated flows directly into the grid. In order to be safely connected to the distribution grid, you must have a double-throw switch installed on the home, which can lead to potential safety concerns.
Contract With Ozarks Natural Energy, you are not bound to any contracts. You can cancel at any time and receive reimbursement at a 4% depreciation rate per year of the remaining life of the panel. The solar installation on your home is permanent and could take up to 15 years for return on investment. It can also be difficult to obtain a loan to purchase a home with solar equipment installations.

In addition, our Ozarks Natural Energy program offers our members - and our Cooperative as a whole - even more benefits, including supporting grid stability and peak reduction, complementing our overall fuel mix diversity and no subsidization or negative impact from members who don’t participate.

We believe in the power of renewable energy and feel strongly about its benefits to our membership.
