Is It Really A Community Wind Program?

Members of Crow Wing Power have recently received a letter from Arcadia Power to “join your neighbor’s in Minnesota’s first Community Wind Program.” You may be asking what this program is. We have put together some Q&A to help answer some of your questions.

Are you Interested in a Community Solar Project?

Providing Information and Getting Members Input

Crow Wing Power is in the process of educating our members about what a Community Solar or (photovoltaic) project might look like and cost. We are conducting surveys in February 2016 to determine how many of our members would pay to participate in a project. 

We would like to provide this information to give our members a general idea of what a Community Solar project might mean for Crow Wing Power members. Details are not finalized.
