CleanChoice Energy, a renewable energy company that provides wind and solar energy products to customers across the country, has opened subscriber enrollment for the Corcoran Community Solar Farm in Minnesota. At more than 600 open subscriber allocations, it is one of the largest single residential Community Solar enrollments ever to open in Minnesota, capital of the community solar movement.
Enrollment for the new farm is open to residents of Hennepin, Ramsey, Anoka, Dakota, Scott, Carver, and Wright Counties. Subscribers can expect to save up to 5% on their utility bills by supporting local solar power.
“Minnesota continues to stand apart as a national Community Solar leader. Opening the Corcoran Solar Farm means that hundreds of more Minnesotans can support solar energy development while saving money on their utility bills,” said Tom Matzzie, CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “Community Solar allows Minnesotans to support to clean energy without a big upfront investment or a home construction project—instead they can sign up online in just a few minutes and save money on their utility bills.”
Corcoran Community Solar Farm subscribers will receive credit on their electric bill for the power generated by the solar panels at the site. CleanChoice’s platform allows customers to sign-up in less than five minutes, and manages ongoing customer engagement–all fully digital and completely online. CleanChoice Energy Community Solar subscribers pay no upfront costs, have no maintenance, and do not need to own their roof—allowing anyone to support local solar even if they rent or do not have a roof suitable for solar panels.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
