Beltrami Electric Cooperative has an 80 kilowatt (kW) Direct Current (DC) community solar array at our headquarters.
The array consists of 180 photo-voltaic panels, each with a projected annual average output of 450 kWh.
Northern Solar provides interested members an option to receive renewable, locally-produced, solar electricity without the hassle of installing, permitting,
maintaining and insuring their own solar array. Members may subscribe to as many panels as they wish, up to the equivalent of their annual average usage.
Members who wish to subscribe to Northern Solar have multiple options to consider:
- Members can subscribe to panel(s) with a One-Time upfront payment and receive the energy produced by the panel(s) for 18 years as a monthly credit on their electric bill.
- We have a financing option too– Easy Pay – that allows members to select a 12, 24 or 36 month payment plan, with no money down at 6 percent interest and will receive a monthly credit on their electric bill, based on the portion of the array they have subscribed to.
- For members who don’t wish to sign a contract, you have the option to Pay As You Go. Simply tell us how many kWh/month you would like to come from Northern Solar and we will add it to your monthly electric bill. With no contract, you can cancel at any time.
