Thank Gov. Dayton for protecting community solar
More than 6,000 Minnesota residential customers are getting affordable solar power through the program and together save $700,000 a month on their energy bills. We are on track to install more than 400 MW of community solar throughout the state.
But, this successful and much-needed program would have been undermined by a provision in the recently-passed Energy Omnibus bill. This provision would have amended the law for community solar in a way that would have prevented future residential customers from participating in the program.
Governor Dayton deserves thanks for making sure this didn’t happen.
