Bitter Creek Solar Garden – 967 kW

Project Name: Bitter Creek Solar Garden
Project Size: 967 kW
Panels: 2,844
Location: Zumbrota, MN
Commissioned: 2018

This 967 kilowatt community solar garden in Goodhue County will produce enough energy to power over 100 average Minnesota homes. Producing this much clean energy is equivalent to planting over 950 acres of new trees. The project, and others like it, will operate for at least 25-years, bringing economic value to the communities in which they serve. Over the course of those 25 years, subscribers to this community solar garden should see total savings in excess of $1,000,000.

Community solar gardens offer a wide array of benefits that include bringing renewable energy to businesses, residents and municipalities that have interest but don’t have the resources to implement on-site solar.

We seed every one of our community solar gardens with a pollinator-friendly seed mix that provides a habitat for bees, butterflies, and other native species.
