We are a subsidiary of, and are the preferred Design-Build contractor for the Rural Renewable Energy Alliance.


Through this relationship we created the first community solar arrays in both Minnesota & North Dakota, various community solar arrays benefiting low-income families, tribal governments and disabled veterans in the Community Solar for Community Action program, 1.5MW of ground mounted solar for local schools such as 800kW's for Pine River Backus High School (pictured to the right) in the Solar for Schools program, a 100kW array in Liberia in the Skip the Grid initiative, and many other smaller scale installs through Habitat for Humanity and other groups.


These projects have often been paired with us providing solar installation, operation and maintenance training for interns, students, and even some of the local Liberians during our trip to Africa!
