During Earth Month, Fresh Energy organized two solar speed dating events for residents of Hennepin and Ramsey County to learn more about community solar and see if they could ultimately find a love match with a community solar company. At the event:
- Participants learned the basics of community solar through a presentation by Trevor Drake with CERTS. You can find a copy of the PowerPoint presentation on our website.
- Fresh Energy offered educational resources for consumers including our Consumer Friendly Community Solar Pledge and a list of key questions to ask developers before subscribing.
- Attendees got to meet face-to-face and ask questions with several community solar companies, including Able Energy Co, Community Energy Solar, Cooperative Energy Futures, Novel Energy Solutions/Minnesota Community Solar, SunDial, and SunShare.
