Progressing the Future of Clean Energy in the Land of 10,000 Lakes

You will contribute toward a more sustainable planet for your children and grandchildren when you power your home with NRG Community Solar. Not only that, we employ hardworking Minnesotans to build and maintain our solar farms. Your support is rewarded through solar credits and the likelihood of accumulating long-term savings with a hassle free solar subscription.

Each month community solar will apply credits to your regular utility bill based on the solar output from your allocation of your solar farm. As a result, you can directly impact the future of clean energy for generations to come while saving on your energy costs.

Not sure if there is a community solar farm in your area? We currently serve communities in Big Lake, Pine Island and Wabasha, and many more as we continue to expand to more areas.

Savings depend on community solar pricing versus applicable bill credit for solar farm production. Bill credit amounts will vary by utility territory and are subject to change.
Savings are not guaranteed. Terms and conditions apply and not everyone will qualify for community solar. Contact NRG Community Solar LLC for details.

“I like Community Solar because I can participate in locally sourced solar without having to make a large investment, and my friends who have apartments can participate in solar without having a structure to build it on.”

Melinda H., Community Solar Customer
