CleanChoice Energy has announced that construction is complete on a 20 MW portfolio of community solar farms in Minnesota.
The portfolio consists of 15 individual projects that are now open for enrollment by Minnesota residents. The projects, which are owned and operated by Altus Power America, are located in Blue Earth, Dakota, Douglas, Goodhue, McLeod, Meeker, Nicollet, Rice, Stearns, Washington and Winona counties. Subscribers can live in those or 20 adjacent counties.
“These 15 newly complete solar farms mean thousands of Minnesotans can save money on their utility bills while helping propel us into a solar-powered, clean energy future,” says Tom Matzzie, founder and CEO of CleanChoice Energy. “Minnesota has the top community solar program in the country – providing people and businesses the opportunity to support solar and job growth in their communities while reducing their utility bills.”
“Altus Power is proud to be a part of the expanding community solar opportunity for Minnesotans,” adds Gregg Felton, managing partner of Altus Power America. “Affordable clean energy is now more accessible than ever before. We are pleased to be working with CleanChoice Energy to bring solar power to the local community.”
CleanChoice Energy says it is the largest residential community solar provider in Minnesota, with more than 85 MW of capacity.
