Stearns Electric Association is a member-owned electric cooperative. Since 1937, Stearns Electric Association has provided electricity and related products and services to Central Minnesota. Today, Stearns Electric Association serves nearly 25,000 members in six Central Minnesota counties including Stearns, Todd, Morrison, Kandiyohi, Pope and Douglas.
SolarWise is the new Community Solar program from Stearns Electric. A simple, convenient and cost effective way to participate in solar generation. SolarWise is a community-based solar array designed to make it easy and affordable for our members to support an alternative, environmentally-friendly energy option.
How it Works: Become a part of the SolarWise Community by purchasing the output of one or more solar panels located in the community solar array at Stearns Electric Association’s St. Joseph Branch Office. The energy produced from this project helps supply energy to our distribution system. While the energy created doesn’t directly power your home, you will receive a credit on your energy bill based on the output of the system.
