This Winona residential solar installation was part of the Made in Minnesota Solar Incentive Program. This solar array was installed right next door to a previous year’s installation, which was also in the MiM program.
The annual solar power generated by this solar PV system will be about three times the average annual usage of this home. This means that the homeowner, if they keep their usage the same, will never again have to pay for power. This customer will actually be getting almost twice as much back from the electric utility as they were paying before they went solar!
Even if they decide to sell the house down the road, they have increased the resale value of the home because it has solar. That added value is exempt from assessment on real estate taxes. This is about the only way to add value to your home without having to pay additional taxes!
The 36 Heliene solar panels and 18 APSystem inverters both come with a 25 year manufacturer’s warranty.
