Since 2012, the City of Minneapolis aims to create a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future in part through the Green Cost Share program.
This program offers matching funds for commercial, industrial, multi-family, and single-family properties undertaking a variety of innovative pollution reduction projects, including the installation of solar power. For qualifying installations, this Minneapolis solar incentive will pay a credit based on the first year estimated kilowatt hour (kWh) production.
Every year, All Energy Solar applies to this program and submits the necessary documentation for new solar constructions on behalf of our customers as a group. For one recent round of funding, 96 projects built by All Energy Solar were submitted under this program. Those customers received a combined total of $158,474.80 additional rebate dollars for making the switch to solar.
Though many new solar arrays throughout the City of Minneapolis could potentially qualify for this incentive, priority is given to projects in designated Green Zones of Minneapolis and/or participating in the 4d Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing Program.
Could you potentially qualify for this Minneapolis solar incentive? One of our solar consultants may be able to help you find out, or you could also visit the Minneapolis Green Cost Share section of the City’s website to learn more.
Minneapolis ranks among the top cities in the nation when it comes to setting and meeting climate change goals. Greenhouse gas emissions in Minneapolis dropped 17% in 2018 compared to 2006 levels and about a third of the city’s energy comes from renewable sources.
