Welcome to the electrifying world of Summer Energy School, where we’ll be diving into the juicy details of clean energy and climate policy here in Minnesota! Twice a month, we’ll send you a text with a new post to read and a short, five-question quiz so you can test your knowledge. By summer’s end, you’ll be a master of all things energy! Your friends will be so jealous.
