Minnesota Solar Power Hour Series: Thank you!

Thanks to our program partners and all who were involved in the Minnesota Solar Power Hour series in summer 2017. Together, we reached 464 people with 15 presentations around the Twin Cities metro area.

The program has concluded for the year. If you are interested in bringing a presentation to your community, please contact info@midwestrenew.org.

The Solar Power Hour series was focused on providing information about going solar to Minnesota residents. Presentations included information on solar energy for homes and businesses, community solar, available incentives, energy efficiency improvements, and solar financing.
