Cut solar red tape

Complicated permitting processes make going solar more difficult. Municipalities should work together to lower this barrier.

Solar energy benefits all Minnesotans by reducing electric bills, creating local jobs, and spurring economic development. But too many Minnesotans face unnecessary challenges to going solar in the form of municipal “red tape” such as local permitting fees and lengthy utility interconnection approval. These administrative obstacles can be the difference between a quick, affordable solar installation and a costly one. Don’t let burdensome red tape hold you back from going solar!

Urge your municipality to make going solar easier

Cut the red tape that is making it too hard for some Minnesotans to go solar.
