Important Updates

Solar Incentives for Homeowners

Recent changes to utility rebates and tax incentives make now a great time to explore going solar for Habitat homeowners:

  • As of January 1, 2024, ALL Habitat homeowners are eligible for Xcel Energy’s Solar Rewards Program. This program provides a significant up-front incentive for installing solar panels PLUS a 10 year annual production incentive.
  • The federal Inflation Reduction Act provides tax credits for solar installations at a minimum of 30% and as high as 70% of installation cost depending on location and income.

3 benefits of going solar:

  1. Monthly savings on utility bills
  2. Long-term protection from utility price increases
  3. Reducing CO2 emissions is good for the environment

Twin Cities Habitat invites you to explore solar through one of our trusted partners:

Solar United Neighbors (SUN)
Bobby King: (612) 293-7267

SUN provides help for homeowners who either want to explore getting solar panels installed on their homes OR join a solar co-op, where a group of neighbors join together to purchase solar energy from a "solar garden."

Apadana Solar
Andy Goke: (612) 470-1393

Apadana is a local full service solar provider, helping homeowners to maximize their solar resources and navigate financial incentives. They are a certified small, minority owned business enterprise ranked highly by solar industry organizations.

 All Energy Solar
Charles Mollenkamp: (612) 248-0560

All Energy Solar is a local provider that has been installing solar in the Twin Cities since 2009. They provide full solar panel installation service as well as financing. A new program offering could mean no-cost solar installation for a limited number of homeowners.

Top Tip: Get quotes from at least 3 companies before selecting any contractor. A full list of solar installers who have agreed to the Minnesota Solar Energy Industries Association (MnSEIA) code of conduct can be found at: www.mnseia.org

Maintenance Funds

Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity and Amerinat have distributed all remaining homeowner maintenance funds.
