Community solar: Share your perspective

post-top-solar-maple-grove_Fresh Energy is continuing its work with researchers from the University of St. Thomas to develop materials and resources to help Minnesotans better understand what this opportunity does—and doesn’t—mean for them.

As part of this work, we’re asking our members to take a survey to help us continue to better understand perspectives on community solar and find out what you’ll need to make informed decisions about this new opportunity. Your responses will be kept confidential and will not be associated with your name. If you agree to participate in this study, it should take approximately 10 minutes. Thank you in advance for your insight!

Please review the consent language before agreeing to be in the study. By beginning the survey, you acknowledge that you have read the consent language and agree to participate in this study.

Note: Please be aware that questions 1, 2, and 3 ask your opinion about projects that would be located IN your neighborhood while questions 4, 5, and 6 ask your opinion about projects that would be located OUTSIDE of your neighborhood.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Dr. Steve Hoffman (651-962-5723) or Dr. Angela High-Pippert (651-962-5725) at the University of St. Thomas.
