Incentives available to publicly owned facilities that install photovoltaic systems.

POP Solar—for publicly owned facilities

How it works

We provide cash incentives to publicly owned facilities that install non-residential solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Publicly owned facilities receive $1,500 per kilowatt (kW) of installed solar PV nameplate (AC) capacity—up to 50% of project costs—for systems 40 kW or less in size based on AC nameplate capacity.

This is a valuable program for tax-exempt public entities, who can pair this benefit with federal and state program grant and rebate offerings. 

Our Publicly Owned Property Solar program helps us meet Minnesota's 2013 Solar Energy Standard (SES). To qualify, customers who sign up must agree to assign all renewable energy credits to our company to help us meet this SES.
