Minneapolis Solar Co-op

What is a solar co-op?

We bring homeowners together into a group, or solar co-op. We provide unbiased, installer-neutral support to solar co-op participants through each stage of the process of going solar. Our experienced team ensures you understand how solar works, how it can be financed, and how it can be installed on your home.

Solar co-ops take advantage of the group’s bulk-purchasing power to get discounted pricing and a quality installation. Volunteer solar co-op participants choose an installer on behalf of the entire group through an open and competitive bidding process. The selected installer provides solar co-op participants a personalized proposal for their consideration.
