Minnesota Community Solar Gardens

We think Minnesota is the most exciting place to be right now for community solar gardens.  According to CleanTechnica, Minnesota’s Community Solar Program is the best designed.

Minnesota passed a community solar garden law in 2014 that requires utilities to create community solar programs.  There are already over 500 applications in for new projects, but Xcel Energy is requesting some changes to the program which is holding up the process.

Either way, some of these projects are already sold out and many more will be coming soon.

Minnesota also benefits from a robust solar industry with companies like tenKsolar
