Save money by protecting against Xcel rate increases.
In the last 15 years, Xcel energy rates have increased by 76%- an average of 3.51% per year. While no one can predict future utility prices, when you enroll in Community Solar, your rate will only increase by 2% each year. Not only will you not have to worry about unpredictable utility rates, the average Minnesotan can expect to save more than $11,000 over the lifetime of their agreement.
How it Works
Your solar farm
Electricity from your solar farm goes directly into your regional utility grid. You pay a monthly Community Solar subscription to CleanChoice based on how much energy is produced by your share of the solar farm.
You receive credits on
your utility bill
The energy produced from your share of the Community Solar farm will appear as "bill credits" on your utility bill, reducing your total electricity bill.
Enjoy your savings and
a cleaner world
The difference between what you pay for your Community Solar subscription and the value of the bill credits on your utility bill may result in savings - and a better, cleaner world.
You can help ensure a better
environment for future generations.
Join today to support the production of 100% clean solar energy in your region.
