In business since 1991, Innovative Power Systems is the solar expert in Minnesota. Contact us for your next renewable energy project.

Design & Consultation

New construction, remodeling, or commercial building? Whatever the case, Innovative Power Systems can design your solar electric, solar thermal, or wind system, specify all the components, and provide a quote for the installation. With over 20 years in the renewable energy business, Innovative Power Systems is the solar expert for your next project. We work with architects, builders, and contractors to ensure that solar is incorporated effectively.
When adding solar to an existing structure, IPS will conduct a solar site evaluation to measure all roof areas, conduct a solar shading analysis to quantify the shading on the site, determine where the balance of the systems will be located (i.e. inverter, conduit/pipe runs, tanks, etc.), and answer any questions about the systems and installation process. After the solar site evaluation we will provide you with a proposal which includes roof drawings, specs of all components, schematics, and costs for all options. Our site evaluations are free.




Innovative Power Systems installs solar electric, solar thermal, electric vehicle charging stations, and large residential wind systems throughout Minnesota, western Wisconsin, northern Iowa, and the eastern Dakotas. Innovative Power Systems has been in business since 1991 and has installed hundreds of systems throughout the Upper Midwest. Ralph Jacobson, owner of Innovative Power Systems, is NABCEP certified for both solar electric and solar thermal systems, ensuring that you get the best installed system available. With renewable energy systems, it's not just what is installed, it's who installs them that matters.   

Service & Maintenance

Innovative Power Systems services existing solar thermal, solar electric, and wind systems.  Typically, solar thermal and solar electric systems need very little maintenance, but when they do, our  technicians will make sure your systems stay up and running for decades of renewable energy production.
