Lind Community Solar Garden

Lind Community Solar Garden

The Lind Community Solar Garden located in Carver County will produce enough energy to power 1,000 average Minnesotan homes.

The project, and others like it, will operate for at least 25 years, bringing economic value to the communities in which they serve. There are several marquee subscribers including the City of Minnetonka and the City of Maple Grove. Over the course of 25 years, subscribers to this community solar garden should see total savings in excess of $7,000,000.

The project will be owned long-term by east-coast utility Washington Gas Energy Systems.

The Xcel Solar Rewards Program (community solar) in Minnesota provides an opportunity for local businesses, municipalities, and school districts to benefit from using renewable energy without constructing a solar project on their property. The program provides subscribers savings on their energy bills as well as socially conscious participation in renewable energy around the state.
