 CoServ Solar Station, Krugerville, Texas  CoServ Truck Shed Solar Array, Corinth, Texas

Built on the site of a former peanut farm, the CoServ Solar Station sits on 16 acres in Krugerville (Denton County). The 2 megawatt alternating-current array comprises 8,448 fixed-tilt solar panels, each expected to produce 473.4 kilowatt hours per year for a total of 3.9 million kWh.

The Solar Station is CoServ’s second array. In 2009, we installed a 95 kilowatt peak system on the roof of our truck shed at our corporate headquarters in Corinth. It produces about 136,000 kWh per year, serving about 2.5 percent of the kWh energy needs of our corporate facilities.


Under the direction of the CoServ Electric Board of Directors, we built the CoServ Solar Station with you in mind. We know that investing thousands of dollars in long-term contracts, leases or rooftop installations is not possible for many individual Members who are interested in a solar option, so when the opportunity became available, we jumped at it. And, we are pleased to offer you several viable rate options, which you can find here.

Implementing innovative ideas is our Vision and providing energy solutions, our Mission. That’s the power of cooperative membership.
