Lincoln Park Solar Garden
The Lincoln Park Solar Garden is a 40-kilowatt solar array at the northeastern entrance to Lincoln Park. It is Duluth’s first community-owned, low-income solar project. The power from the array will benefit the Duluth Veterans’ Place, a transitional housing project by the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans, and provide long-term funding for an Emergency Energy Fund to help families that are struggling to pay their utility bills.
This innovative project creates a new model for providing power that directly benefits community members in need. Typical community solar projects allow households or businesses to buy subscriptions to solar arrays, yet these subscriptions can be out of reach for low-income people or people with barrier issues such as bad credit. This project will generate renewable power for over 25 years and distribute the value of community solar to countless families in our city.
