Project Description: 

With Northern Solar, you don’t have to worry about assembling or wiring your solar power—Beltrami Electric Cooperative (BEC) will take care of that for you. BEC will handle all maintenance requirements during the 20 year lease. All you have to do to begin receiving solar power is purchase a subscription. When you participate in community solar, you’re choosing an alternative to fossil-fuel consumption. Solar energy is clean and abundant. Additionally, monthly credits will be calculated based on the current electric rate. That means if rates go up, the value you receive from your panels’ production will too.
