Southside Goes Green                       Community Solar Garden Cohort
CANDO (Central Area Neighborhood Development Organization), Lyndale Neighborhood Association and Minneapolis Climate Action are creating a Southside Goes Green Cohort and we need you!

Use this form sign up to join our cohort that will collaborate to create an innovative community solar garden model designed by and for neighbors and neighborhood associations. No experience necessary! We will meet to train participants in what community solar gardens and how they work and then together we will create an equitable accessible model together!

You will get a stipend for participating and there will be 3-4 community cohort meetings with times to be determined.

Below is a bit about how a community solar garden works just for background info:

Requirements for participation:
You pay your own Xcel electric bill, not through a landlord or third party.
You live in Hennepin County or a county next to Hennepin County.

Each CSG subscription is 1kw.

We have three options to participate:
1. PAY AS YOU GO Shares require no up front money and we don't check income or credit score. Pay As You Go Shares receive a smaller bill credit, since you pay for your subscription as you go along, with the benefit of not having to put money down up front.

Each month, subscribers automatically get a credit on their electric bill according to your subscription amount and the amount of electricity the array produces. We then invoice you each month for your small installment payment to us. The monthly rate to you is lower than the Xcel bill credit rate averaged out over a year – so you  come out ahead with MCA Community Solar.

2. PAY UP FRONT Shares are $950 and you receive your total electric bill credit for the solar energy produced
Pay Up Front. You pay an annual $47 operation and maintenance fee, that goes up 2% a year.

3. Make a tax deductible donation to provide a Pay Up Front subscription to be allocated to  community member with low incomes.

There is no obligation to subscribe by filling out this form — you are simply asking to be placed on our sign up list or ask questions and we will send next steps.
