Join Fresh Energy and others at the Minnesota Solar Congress, a free public conference that brings together solar supporters from across the state. It’s an opportunity to learn, share stories, and celebrate solar energy in Minnesota. This first annual event will focus on solar opportunities in rural communities, for farms, businesses, and homes.
The day will include a series of presentations about solar technology and policy topics, including Rob Davis, Director of the Center for Pollinators in Energy at Fresh Energy, who will be presenting on how the federal government is studying and promoting pollinator-friendly solar. Other topics will include: solar 101, the economics of solar for farmers, the state of solar in Minnesota, and much more! The event will conclude with a tour of the innovative clean energy projects at the West Central Research and Outreach Center.
The 2018 Minnesota Solar Congress is being hosted by Solar United Neighbors, in partnership with West Central Research and Outreach Center, Minnesota Farmers Union, Renewing the Countryside, University of Minnesota, Morris, Clean Energy Resource Teams, and the Western Chapter of the Sustainable Farming Association.
