Solar Pioneer Programs

The City of Ashland has been promoting the use of solar energy since 1981, when it passed one of the first citywide solar access protection ordinances in the United States.

TIn the spring of 2000, more than 250 citizens voluntarily added a Solar Pioneer surcharge to their electric bill. This surcharge of $4.00 per month will be used to reimburse the Festival and the University for solar generated electricity at $.25 kWhs, until their investment is fully recouped. It is anticipated that the institutions will be fully reimbursed in 8-12 years.

Now the City of Ashland has successfully administrated two Solar Pioneer Programs, Solar Pioneer and Solar Pioneer II.
