Innovative Power Systems was founded in 1991 by Ralph Jacobson with the simple goal of helping customers save money and the environment. Since that time we’ve completed over 1,000 renewable projects in the state and solidified our spot as one of the top US solar contractors. The Minnesota Solar Energy Industries Association recently recognized Ralph with that organization’s first Lifetime Achievement Award, a group he co-founded in 2007. Our mission is simple, to save money for our customers and lead the local transition away from fossil fuels toward renewable power. Our vision is a future free from the drastic and harmful effects of climate change while reducing Minnesota’s energy deficit. Currently our state spends $20,000,000,000 each year to import fuels like coal, gas, and oil. We believe that Minnesotans should invest that money locally in construction and infrastructure that benefits our economy.
