Community Solar Project

The PUD Community Solar project in development next to the Dana Roberts Substation was paused during the Covid-19 pandemic and has not been restarted. Customers can continue to express their interest in a community solar project via the sign up sheet below, but it is unclear if JPUD will resume this project or begin another in the future. 


Jefferson County PUD is in the early stages of planning its first ever community solar project. We want to know how many of our customers would be interested in taking part. Please click the link below to fill out our Community Solar Survey!
