Ideas Worth Spreading: Stacking Benefits of Large-Scale Solar

Ignite 10

Billed as “the largest ever,” IGNITE 10 did it — sold out the 1,200 seat Minneapolis Depot with a vibrant crowd of civic leaders, creative connectors, and design-savvy beer geeks. (Congrats Patrick & the Ignite crew!)

Stacking the benefits of America’s rapid deployment of solar — by using the land under and around the panels for biodiverse pollinator habitat — is an idea worth sharing. As you’ll see in the embedded video, just a single acre of pollinator-friendly solar is land equivalent to 605 homes planting 6’x12’ pollinator gardens — and then maintaining them for 25 years.

Know of an audience that would like to hear about it in person (e.g. Rotary, corporation, organization, church group)? Please get in touch —

Here are some of the resources I used in preparing my IGNITE talk:
