Jenny Jensen loves that her life now involves solar power. “We wanted to do our part for the environment in the face of climate change,” she explained.

Connected to Solar United Neighbors by Ecolibrium3, Jensen found out it wasn’t difficult to start the journey.

She’s part of the Duluth and Arrowhead Solar Co-op. The panels went up on her home last summer.

“We’ve been very happy with it. The first few, you know, Minnesota Power Bills when it first came out were very exciting. It’s like -$100. So it’s getting credits. So that was exciting,” she shared.

Bret Pence, from Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light, shared that the biggest question they get is if solar will work in Duluth. “Yes, it does work. But it’s hard to know when it works so quietly and behind the scenes.”

Pence got solar on his home in November. And he’s getting a tax credit for his investment. “Tomorrow I’m going to get my tax credit back from the federal government. Which is 30% of the solar array,” he shared.

By joining a co-op for free, local homeowners and small business owners can go solar together, helped by experts with the nonprofit Solar United Neighbors. The co-op is open to new participants until May 30.
