Renewable Energy

Whether you’re a renter supporting green energy or a homeowner making a long-term investment in solar, there are renewable options available in Wayzata to fit your needs.

Renewable energy subscription programs

Even if you aren’t making major installations on your property like solar panels or a wind turbine, there are great options to support renewable energy. Check out these subscription programs to power your home with renewable sources.

  • Windsource®: Choose to source up to 100% of your home’s monthly electricity use from locally produced wind energy with Xcel Energy’s Windsource® program. The cost ranges from $1 to $10 per month, depending on subscription amount and your home’s electricity use. Windsource is also great way for renters to support renewable electricity.
  • Community solar garden subscriptionsA community solar garden is a solar power plant that provides electricity to more than one household. Members of the community can have the benefits of solar power without installing solar panels on their property. 

On-site solar installations (e.g., rooftop solar): With your own solar installation, you can generate some or all of the electricity your home uses. You may even be able to sell what your home doesn’t need to your electric utility!
