Northfield Solar Garden – 6.63 MW

Project Name: Northfield Area Solar Garden
Project Size: 6.63 MW
Panels: 19,800
Location: Northfield, MN
Commissioned: 2018

This 6.63 Megawatt community solar garden in Rice County will produce enough energy to power over 1,000 average Minnesota homes. 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 $7,000,000.

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.
