As one of the top agriculture regions in Minnesota and located on the banks of the Mississippi River, producing crops like corn and soybeans, this city was founded on hard work and the goal of making an impact.
Having strong roots in agriculture and an environmental focus, the residents of St. Cloud can benefit from going green.
2015 marked the start of St. Cloud’s renewable energy initiative to rely on 100% green power by the end of 2028. Homeowners in The Granite City can inspire their neighbors and friends to make the switch to clean energy and help their city achieve the renewable energy reliance goal.
Blue Raven Solar strives to help Minnesota homeowners interested in contributing to a better future through offering custom solar panel designs and installations.

With almost 200 days of sunshine in St. Cloud each year, solar power can become a reliable and affordable source of energy. Solar panel efficiency is at an all-time high while costs are at an all-time low, giving you the opportunity to save thousands of dollars by making the switch.
Keep the cost of going solar to a minimum by participating in the following local tax incentives, utility company credits, and state rebates. Because the cost of installing residential solar varies greatly depending on where you live and your current energy usage, we can help you navigate and receive the most savings.
The federal government allows solar owners who own their solar panel arrays to file for a 30% tax deduction on their federal income taxes.
Minnesota offers a statewide net metering policy and is one of 17 states to extend specialized programs for residents who participate in renewable energy sources. Reach out to your current utility company to see how you can benefit from net metering.
Homeowners are exempt from any sales tax on equipment necessary to complete their solar panel system and any increase in property taxes, despite added value to their homes.
For each kilowatt-hour of solar energy produced for 10 years, Xcel Energy allows homeowners to earn money.
Homeowners owning their power can experience the full benefits of solar energy. All utility company rebates, tax credits, and benefits of net metering go to you, the homeowner, whereas in a lease or power purchase agreement you will only receive slightly lower utility bills. All other incentives and benefits go to the solar provider.
Blue Raven Solar is dedicated to helping homeowners save money while making an impact on the planet through clean energy production. When you purchase a solar panel system, we realize the concern and large investment, but are here to make the process easy for you.
Here’s what you can expect when you partner with Blue Raven Solar.

Home equity is another benefit homeowners usually enjoy when they install residential solar on their roof. For example, if you were to save $600 per year on utilities with solar technology, you would increase your home’s value by 20 times, bringing it up to $12,000.
If you moved, you could resell your home without someone taking over the lease and it would be valued higher.

The United States relies on over 60% of electricity to come from traditional energy sources like the burning of coal, oil, and natural gas. We believe this is not a sustainable future because it is a limited resource. During the refinement process, fossil fuels emit chemical gases leading to pollution which can also harm the planet.
Alternatively, solar energy is readily accessible because of the source and is one of the cleanest forms of energy production.
Solar energy or the photovoltaic effect starts with the sun. The sun releases enough energy every hour and a half to power the entire planet for a year. Solar panels capture the light radiated to the surface and turn it into other useful forms of energy.
Blue Raven Solar can help you utilize your portion of the sun’s rays by installing a custom residential solar panel system in St. Cloud. We create a hassle-free experience for our customers so it can be as easy and seamless as flipping a switch.
A common way solar technology converts sunlight is through photovoltaic (PV) panels. This specialized equipment coupled with power inverters, customized racking systems, and innovative efficiency monitoring technologies can help you generate electricity to power your house and store excess energy in batteries or other home storage solutions.
Our solar installation process is detailed and broken down into steps. We have dedicated teams assigned to each step to ensure you are updated and informed. We work hard to take care of you from consultation, to permitting, to energization, keeping your experience hassle-free with our team of experts.
Solar prices are falling, which means they are becoming more affordable. Combine lower prices with tax credits and exclusive financing options like BluePowerPlus+ or SmartStart and rooftop solar could pay itself off within a few years.
Better Business Bureau
“Extremely friendly. Extremely honest. Did everything they could to make the process as easy and painless as possible. Did what they said they were going to do and cleaned up after themselves. The panels look amazing and I’m hoping for big returns on investment.”
“Very good experience all around. From the project manager, to the installers, and the support staff, everyone did a great job! All of our questions were answered in a timely manner. The entire installation only took 1 day. Once the net meter was installed by the utility company, turning on the system was quite simple. The cost was low enough that we anticipate the system paying for itself in 10 or 11 years, which is great since it’s warrantied for 25.“
“Blue Raven Solar was very professional from day one. They came by our door and we were impressed with their system during the meeting. They answered all of our questions and made us feel comfortable with each step before moving on to the next step. I would recommend Blue Raven Solar to anyone looking for solar panels!”
