Solar Research

AMEA is dedicated to researching and identifying cost-effective resources as part of our energy future.

When we do, we often purchase alternative energy sources to serve our Members and their customers, such as power from hydroelectric or nuclear facilities.

Recently, our efforts have taken us into the area of solar power—electrical energy harnessed directly from the sun’s radiation. The 50-KW AMEA Solar Research Project was completed in August 2016 and placed at the AMEA headquarters facility in Montgomery, which uses the energy produced.
