Hormel supports solar energy and has partnered with NextEra Energy Resources and Ampion Renewable Energy to offer employees a unique opportunity to save on energy costs. For a limited time, every approved customer who signs up for community solar through this page will receive a $100 Visa gift card* as our way of saying thank you for supporting the growth of local renewable energy. With no upfront costs and nothing to install, it’s the easiest way to benefit from solar energy. It takes less than 5 minutes to register and all you need is your utility bill at hand to provide some account information.

Solar energy is clean, safe, and renewable. Ampion makes it easy to access. We connect people with solar farms – avoiding the need for expensive solar panels on their roof.
Protect the environment and save money! Our subscribers see an average savings of 10% on their annual electricity bill – all while cutting their carbon footprint.

How does it work?

Easy Sign up

Sign up for free to become an Ampion member in as little as 5 minutes. Ampion matches you to a solar farm and assigns you a share of the electricity it generates based on your typical usage.

Energy Production

The solar farm produces clean energy and delivers it to the grid where it can be used by local customers. Your utility company applies credits to your bill based on your portion of the energy generated by the solar farm. This reduces your bill. Any unused credits roll over to the next month.

Save Money & Help the Environment

Each month after the bill credits from your solar farm have been applied to your utility bill, you’ll pay Ampion at a discounted rate for every dollar of billing credit received. You save money month after month and help build a more sustainable community!

Frequently Asked Questions

You will have access to a software portal that will allow you to view the solar production, monetary savings, and environmental impact that’s possible with your support of our program.

Because no roof is required to participate, nearly anyone can join. Homeowners, renters, places of worship, and small businesses can all support clean energy and benefit from cheap solar power.

Your current utility will still service your account and deliver energy to your home or business. Any energy consumption that isn’t covered by your energy credits will be paid to the utility at their price.

Yes! However, if you receive a bill for your third-party supplier that is separate from your utility bill, credits can only be applied to your utility bill. If your electricity charges appear in a consolidated bill, your credits can be used to offset the entire bill.

In addition to showing you real-time information about the solar array you belong to, our software will also provide online records of your current and past bills.

There is no cost to join our community solar program. The energy credits produced by the solar array will be applied to your bill, and offered to you at a 10% discount.

If you are moving to a residence that is still in the area of eligibility, you can take your subscription with you! As long as you reside in the same utility service territory, you can continue to be a part of your project.

Your online portal is created using the email address and password you use to enroll. Once you are assigned to one of our projects, you will be invited to view information and metrics specific to your subscription.

Signing up is easy–simply enter your zipcode at the top of this page. If you live in an eligible area, we’ll direct you to a sign-up page where you can get started.

Our success is defined by how well we serve the greater good, not just the profits we earn. We promise to consider the impact of our decisions on the environment and society.
