What is happening

UPDATE: The Omnibus Jobs, Energy and Commerce Bill came so close to passage with many of our pro-solar provisions included. However, the House and Senate did not vote on the bill.

BUT, there’s still an opportunity for your elected leaders to agree to a special session and pass this bill that will expand solar in Minnesota.

Background

The Omnibus Jobs, Energy, and Commerce Bill contains several separate pieces of legislation that advance solar. These provisions will expand solar in Minnesota, help individuals and schools save money, and build a better energy future for all.

Read more about what the Bill includes below. Contact your legislators and the Governor to tell them you support these pro-solar provisions:

  • $20 million for Solar Rewards with an extension to the year 2025.  
  • $8 million for Solar for Schools (within Xcel Energy territory);
  • $7.95 million for Solar for Schools (outside Xcel territory);
  • $3.5 million for a grant to the National Sports Center in Blaine to build a solar + storage project; 
  • $3 million for a solar development project at the old Ford manufacturing plant in St. Paul.
Take action!

Tell legislators & the Governor to call a special session to pass pro-solar provisions.
