In normal times, low-income community members spend a much higher portion of their income on energy bills than do others.
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted this problem even more, with people spending more time at home than usual.
Rooftop solar provides a solution.
The families that can least afford a rooftop solar system often have the highest monthly energy bills. But everyone should have access to clean energy regardless of income.
This is why Solar United Neighbors has launched a project to help low-income households in Minnesota own a rooftop solar system this summer.
You can make life better for a low-income Minnesota family!
Please make a tax-deductible donation today to Solar United Neighbors. Every dollar makes a difference!
Every additional solar panel installed means more clean, renewable energy; more money saved; and increased home value.
We've helped families qualify for solar incentives like the Minneapolis Green Cost Share, Xcel Solar Rewards, and Minnesota Power Solar Sense. And, the homeowners are contributing what they can to get solar on their home. But some of them need a little more financial assistance to make the project work.
This is where you come in. Ten low-income homeowners are working to go solar, and we’re looking to raise $8,400 towards making this possible.

About Solar United Neighbors
Solar United Neighbors is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit charity with a strong track record. Since 2007, we've helped over 5,000 U.S. homeowners go solar by organizing local, bulk-purchase co-ops. We accomplished this through community outreach and education in collaboration with partners and community members.
We also were selected by the DC government to help implement the District's Solar for All program. Through Solar for All, Solar United Neighbors helped 73 low-income DC homeowners go solar in 2018 and 2019 at no cost to them.
We're excited to bring to Minnesota our dedication to making access to solar energy more equitable and inclusive.
