Solar*Rewards

A legislatively funded solar incentive program for small commercial
on-site solar arrays.

PV Demand Credit

This is an option for any demand metered Xcel Energy customer with solar generation greater than 40 kWAC with a single production meter. On top of reducing the amount of energy purchased from the utility, customers that can accommodate larger systems will receive compensation from Xcel for helping them reduce their peak demand.

Maximize Your Solar Potential

Sizes are limited to 120% of annual energy use or a system size of 1 MWAC or less.

Renewable Energy Credits

RECs (the right to claim the renewable energy generated as your own) are assigned to the Customer Day One.

Construct in One Year

The interconnection application process includes more detailed engineering studies in house and with the Utility that can elongate the process.

Billed Demand Credit

$0.06965/kWH generated by the solar array from 1-7 pm for the life of the array (~40 years).

Orono Activity - 1-1

Xcel Solar for Schools

New state funding puts solar on the curriculum for Minnesota schools. The omnibus commerce and energy policy and finance bill includes $16 million for solar projects on K-12 schools and nearly $5 million for community colleges. ... That leaves hundreds of rooftops with the potential to host money-saving solar projects.

The program for schools in Xcel Energy Territory will be administered by Xcel Energy and will come in the form of grants for projects with limitations per District.

Maximize Your Solar Potential

Sizes are limited to 120% of annual energy use or a system size of 1 MWAC or less.

Solar*Rewards

This is an incentivized program offered on a first come, first serve basis from Xcel Energy. Annual payments are made to the owner of the solar system in exchange for Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) for the energy produced by the solar system. If you produce more than you need, the extra energy is added to the grid and any excess energy is credited to your bill. This is called “net metering”.

Determining Your Solar Potential

Sizes are limited to 120% of annual energy use or a system size of 40kWAC or less. These systems typically have a footprint of ~ 4000 s.f.

Renewable Energy Credits

RECs  (the right to claim the renewable energy generated as your own) are assigned to Xcel Energy for the first ten years of the system life.

Construct in 6-9 Months

The interconnection application includes a fast track option that can get you energized with solar within 6-9 months from application.

Annual Rebate

$0.03/kWH generated by the solar array for a 10-year period.
Low-income qualified customers receive an additional $0.50/watt upfront incentive.
