Emerge Second Chance Community Solar Garden: Subscribers Wanted!

Did you know you have an opportunity right in Ward 1 to use renewable solar energy, save on your electric bill, reduce pollution and promote local green jobs? The Second Chance Community Solar Garden is installed on the Emerge Second Chance Recycling facility at 1179 15th Ave SE in Minneapolis and we are signing up subscribers now for a projected early summer launch!

Community solar gardens (CSG) are solar arrays on a larger roof (in this case, Emerge) whose electricity is shared by more than one property. CSGs are an opportunity for Minneapolis neighbors to participate in the solar energy revolution, regardless of income, credit score or whether you rent or own, and get a credit on their electric bill. And there are options to participate with no upfront money. The only requirement is that you pay your own Xcel electric bill and not a landlord or third party.

BENEFITS of Community Solar Gardens:

  • Enables renters or those with roofs unsuitable for solar to use renewable energy and get a credit on your electric bill.
  • Enables participation regardless of income or credit score, with a Pay-As-You-Go option that does not require upfront money.
  • Energy bill credits move with you, even if you move homes.
  • Make your money back (& then some…) with an estimated 8 year Return on Investment (ROI) with the Pay Up Front Option.
  • Subscriptions can cover up to 120% of your annual electricity usage.
  • Electricity rates are locked in for 25 years.
  • Quality assurances, turn-key maintenance and energy guarantees.
