Minnesota Solar Power Hour Series – Summer 2017

Join us for a free education session about solar energy options in Minnesota! This summer, the Midwest Renewable Energy Association is partnering with municipalities and neighborhoods around the state to provide information on solar energy to residents.

Topics will include residential solar, community solar, and solar for your business. We’ll discuss financial considerations, available incentives, and how to go about selecting the right installer. Find out what you need to know to get started.

After the presentation, there will be opportunity to talk with partnering solar installers and community solar developers about your specific questions.

Here’s what we’ll cover:

  • Solar for your home or business
  • Community solar
  • Cost comparisons & available incentives
  • Energy efficiency improvements
  • Financing options
