Threat to Community Solar Event: Feb 6th, 2024

In Minnesota, a battle is brewing over the future of solar energy, and it's a fight that requires the collective voice of the community. As we gear up for an insightful conversation about the history and future of community-owned solar, it's crucial to understand the challenges faced and the importance of preserving solar power within the hands of Minnesotan communities.

The Current Scenario:

Utility and energy companies in the state are advocating for administrative changes that could jeopardize the accessibility and affordability of community-owned solar initiatives. These proposed changes aim to make community solar more expensive and burdensome, potentially paving the way for a monopoly that threatens the sustainable energy future we all strive for.

Why It Matters:

Community-owned solar projects empower individuals and neighborhoods, allowing them to actively participate in the transition towards clean and sustainable energy. By understanding the risks and challenges posed by administrative changes, we can collectively work towards ensuring that the benefits of solar power remain accessible to all.

The upcoming event, scheduled for Tuesday, February 06, 2024, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Zoom, boasts an impressive lineup of speakers who are at the forefront of the fight for solar justice:
