Project Description: 

2016 Update: Last year we began selling shares in a new Community Solar Project and within a few months we were 100% sold out. We're 100% Subscribed and footings are being put in soon in anticipation of construction in the spring of 2017! New members wishing to be put on a waiting list for a potential phase two that would not occur until we construct the first 120 panel phase and get the first Community Solar Project up and running can be put on a waiting list.

Eligible Counties:

Eligibility Details: 

Must be a member of Crow Wing Power who pays an electricity bill to participate.

How to Participate: 

Subscription cost of one share is $1300. Crow Wing Power will take care of maintenance and insurance. The contract is for 20 years. Payback depends on the future price of electricity and solar energy produced. You can purchase from one-half share up to, but not to exceed, your kWh use. Maximum shares will be determined by comparing the estimated annual output of the solar share(s) the the annual General Service use historically consumed at the service address. (An average member uses 10,080 kWhs/year in electricity.)
