“Just because you live in Minnesota doesn’t mean you can’t have solar energy,” said Matt Renczykowski, of Albertville.
He and his wife Ann have installed solar energy panels on the roof of their house. They expect to save money in the long run by getting their electricity from solar panels.
“Who knows what rates will be 15 years from now,” Matt said. He predicted that rates would only go up. And he has noticed that “almost every other house in Arizona” has solar panels. In that state electrical rates are noticeably higher than in Minnesota.
Financial incentives from the federal government and Xcel Energy made installation affordable for the Renczykowskis in 2015 and incentives continue to be available.
