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.

If the rates continue to increase at 3.5%, you could save more than $11,000, based on average household over the duration of the agreement.

How it Works

step 1

Your solar farm generates electricity

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.

step 2

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.

step 3

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.
