CSG Waiting List
Start the Process:
Follow these steps to help us pre-qualify you for a solar garden subscription and get on the waiting list for new solar gardens as they become available:
- Download, print, and complete this Xcel Customer Energy Data Consent Release Form. This form allows Xcel to give us the information legally required to determine the subscription you are eligible for. We have pre-filled most of this form with the information we need, so all you need to do is fill in the bottom of the form with your Xcel Energy customer account number, your full address, and the printed name and signature of the person listed on your Xcel Energy bill. Please make sure the name of the person signing, address, and account number exactly match what is on your Xcel bill, otherwise Xcel will not accept the form.
- Scan and email this document to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to “Cooperative Energy Futures, ATTN: Mary Kay Olson, 3500 Bloomington Ave. S, Minneapolis, MN 55407”
- Complete the below form to make it easy for us to follow up with you about the next steps:
What Happens Next:
- After we receive your utility data release form and sign-up, we will submit the data release form to Xcel – this will allow us to calculate the subscription size you are eligible for.
- We’ll call or email you to talk about how much you want to subscribe for, whether you want to subscribe upfront or pay-as-you-go, and answer other questions you have about subscribing.
- When a solar garden that you are eligible for becomes available, we’ll let you know, invite you to contact us to talk through the details, and send you copies of the documents you will need to sign (the Subscriber Agency Agreement with Xcel, the Subscription Agreement with us, and the process for becoming a CEF member if you haven’t already).
- We’ll work with you to answer any questions that you have and schedule a time to sit down and discuss and sign these documents.
- At that meeting, we’ll talk through any remaining questions you have, clarify payment details based on your selected subscription option, go through the expected timeline and process for completing the project and starting operations, and go through signing the documents.
