Open to new members

Duluth and Arrowhead Solar Co-op

Open to residents and small businesses in the Duluth and Arrowhead Area - Pine, Carelton, St. Louis, Lake, and Cook Counties. This solar co-op is not a legally incorporated entity. It is an informally organized group of engaged and educated consumers that SUN brings together for a limited time to leverage their buying power to get the best price and service from a local solar installer. Members of the group are encouraged to stay engaged with SUN after the solar co-op is disbanded but this is not required.

57 members of 150 member goal

Registration closes on July 31, 2024

Imagine walking into a solar company’s office with 50 or 100 of your neighbors and saying, “We all want to get solar. What kind of deal can you give us?”

That’s a solar co-op!

In fact, it’s even better than that. In addition to competitive pricing on solar panels, you get:

  • Info to help you understand solar. Our vendor-neutral solar experts are here to help you understand how solar works and make the best decision for your energy needs.
  • A direct line to ask specific questions. You can call or email us anytime you need help. We’ll be here now and long after you install solar.
  • A team that solicits and reviews proposals from solar companies. First, Solar United Neighbors requests bids on your behalf. Then, a committee of your fellow co-op members meet to assess the pros and cons and select the best installer for the group. (Note: If that sounds interesting to you, you’re also welcome to join the selection committee!)
  • Community. You’ll join the growing solar movement. You’ll have a built-in network of support and inspiration from others who, like you, are taking a stand for energy freedom and advancing the clean energy economy.
  • A bigger impact! Going solar creates jobs, and puts energy production and its benefits back in the hands of the people and contributes to cleaner air and water for everyone. A solar co-op amplifies those outcomes exponentially.

Duluth and Arrowhead Solar Co-op selects Wolf Track Energy to serve group

Thursday, March 28, 2024

The Duluth and Arrowhead Solar Co-op has selected Wolf Track Energy to install solar panels for the 45 (and growing) member group. Co-op members selected Wolf Track Energy through a competitive bidding process over four other firms.  Co-op members selected Wolf Track Energy because of their competitive pricing, equipment quality, extensive workmanship warranty, previous co-op experience, and being local.

The co-op is open to new members until July 31. Duluth and Arrowhead area residents (including Pine, Carelton, St. Louis, Lake, and Cook Counties) interested in joining the co-op can sign up on the co-op web page. The solar co-op is free to join and joining is not a commitment to purchase panels.

Wolf Track Energy will provide each co-op member with an individualized proposal based on the group rate. By going solar as a group and choosing a single installer, members can save on the cost of going solar, as well as have the support of fellow group members and solar experts at Solar United Neighbors.

Hello and thank you for checking out the solar co-op!
Whether you’re just curious about solar, or you’re ready to make the switch now, I’m here to help. I can answer any questions you have about solar. I’ll give you installer-neutral guidance to help you make an informed, confident decision about going solar.
I have worked as an organizer in Minnesota for more than 20 years, bringing people together to create and pass policies that prioritize strong community and local resiliency. I work throughout Minnesota, helping communities go solar, join together, and fight for energy rights. Solar co-ops are a big part of this work!
I love seeing fellow Minnesotans harvesting sunshine to lower their electric bills and build a clean, equitable energy system in their communities!
Take a look around the co-op page, and let me know how I can help you today.
