Publicly Owned Property Solar
How it works
We provide cash incentives to publicly owned facilities that install non-residential solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. We offer incentives of $1,250/kilowatt (kW) of installed solar PV nameplate (DC) capacity, up to 50% of project costs, for systems less than 40 kW of nameplate (DC) capacity.
This program helps our company meet Minnesota's 2013 solar energy legislation, which requires us to provide 1.5% of retail electric energy sales with solar PV generation by 2020. In addition, customers who sign up for the program agree to assign all renewable energy credits to our company to help us meet the solar energy standard.
Eligible public entities
- Public school districts
- Public colleges and universities
- Public trade and technical schools
- City governments
- County governments
- Tribal governments
- Other public entities
This is a valuable program for tax-exempt public entities because they typically don't qualify for the 30% federal tax credit for installing solar-powered systems.
