There’s a lot to celebrate this Earth Day when it comes to solar power and other renewable energies. It’s as if there’s a competition to see who can set the most aspirational goals to decrease and eliminate dependence on fossil fuels, as well as the emissions, waste and pollution they leave behind.

First, there’s two of Minnesota's largest electricity providers — Xcel Energy and Minnesota Power — pursuing 100% carbon-free energy by 2050. Then Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz has proposed a series of policies that would bring the state to 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040.

President Joe Biden has set a goal of 100% renewable energy in the power sector by 2035, with the expectation that wind and solar energy will also be part of the pending infrastructure plan.

Each proposal moves the renewables target a little closer to now, and as believers in clean, green power, we at All Energy Solar are rooting for reaching sustainable energy goals as quickly as possible. There’s plenty of residential and commercial rooftops around Minnesota with potential to be put to good use generating solar power.

Meanwhile, solar energy is gaining steam at the local level. Minneapolis, Saint Louis Park, Chaska and other communities have incentives for residents to install solar panels. Even utilities like Xcel Energy have Solar*Rewards and other programs to encourage investment in solar power.

Could switching to solar be part of your plan for reducing your carbon footprint? You could make a difference and improve the energy independence of your local community. All Energy Solar can help you learn how.

Voting for clean and green with your dollars

Investing in solar power for your properties is one of the best opportunities to “vote with your dollars” in a way that directly benefits you, your community and the earth like almost no other type of investment can accomplish.

Installing solar reduces your dependence on fossil fuels; and when your solar panels generate more power than you consume, the energy is sent back to the local power grid for credit towards future electricity use on your property. This “net metering” positively impacts the local green energy mix of your surrounding community.

It’s also a long-term investment that will impact the future for decades to come. Each solar energy system lasts for 35 to 40 years – sometimes longer if it’s particularly well-maintained.

A 5 kilowatt system, which is around an average residential solar installation size, will produce roughly 150,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of emissions-free electricity during its lifetime. That’s equivalent to 103 metric tons of CO2 emissions, and none of the oil spills, propane leaks or coal ash spills associated with fossil fuels.
