Oregon Wildflower Community Solar Project* is a 2.9 MW solar project located between Jacksonville and Medford, in Southern Oregon. Pollinator-friendly plants will be planted between the rows of solar panels, providing habitat for bees who will help pollinate surrounding farms. A local beekeeper may use the site for some of his hives.
Oregon Wildflower is an ownership-based project, open to Oregon residents who currently get their electricity from Pacific Power. Participants will be able to buy solar panels in the project, with the power generated appearing as credits on their electric bill.
The project is a collaboration between local nonprofit Solarize Rogue and the Oregon Clean Power Co-op. If you’re interested in participating, you can sign up here. We expect to begin taking deposits by summer 2023.
* The proposed project has not been reviewed or pre-certified by the Oregon Community Solar Program Administration.
