Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation’s McKees Solar Park Community Solar Program

The Delaware Municipal Electric Corp. (DEMEC)―a joint action agency serving nine member municipalities―has influenced more than half of Delaware’s 58 MW solar capacity to be located within its member service territories. The newest in the City of Newark, the 23MW McKees Solar Park, is a community solar project deployed by DEMEC with the help of Solar Outreach Partnership (SolarOPs) technical assistance. 

  • The project is innovative and contains may elements tailored for participation flexibility and customer satisfaction.
  • The resulting project is scalable and repeatable – the next similar project is confirmed at 1.5MW for the City of Smyrna, also a DEMEC member.
  • DEMEC received the technical assistance in the form of community solar program design consultation through SEPA, one of the seven SolarOPs supporting partners.
