Solar Energy Made Simple

We connect to the grid, not your roof.

Featured Community Solar Project:

ScottSun Community Solar Project

SunShare’s ScottSun Community Solar Project, comprised of three co-located community solar gardens, began producing clean, renewable energy in May of 2020. Located in Belle Plaine, Minnesota, it will produce enough clean, renewable energy to remove approximately 56,000 cars from the road.

Approximately 800 homes subscribe to this community solar project, in communities located in Scott, Dakota, Hennepin, Le Seuer, Carver, Rice, and Sibley counties. The project is constructed in what is called a standard block design, with south-facing panels angled to achieve the maximum solar exposure.

FAQ about SunShare Community Solar

Yes. By choosing to support a local community solar program you are contributing to reducing the reliance on fossil fuels and creating fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

SunShare will send you a garden activation alert via email about 1 – 2 months prior to your solar garden going live. This email will inform you when your solar garden will be active, and when you will start receiving the benefits of community solar.

One of our pledges as a company is to leave the land better than we found it. For example, in Minnesota, we are part of Fresh Energy’s “Pollinator Pledge.” This means, when possible, we design our gardens to serve as a habitat for bees and butterflies that pollinate local farms. We also try to build on brownfield sites, which include land with limited use such as old landfills or chemical spill sites.

It takes SunShare about 9 – 12 months to acquire land, obtain zoning approvals, receive utility approvals, construct a solar garden and connect and activate the solar garden.
