For the past year, CUB’s executive director, Annie Levenson-Falk, has served on the technical committee of the MN Solar Pathways project. This State of Minnesota initiative is evaluating strategies to achieve state’s goal of 10% solar energy by 2030, which will mean increasing the state’s solar generating capacity by as much as 24 times.
Over three years, the project is considering how to reduce barriers to interconnecting solar developments to the grid, how to fairly compensate utilities and customers for solar energy generation and evaluate the solar potential in the state over the short term and the next 10-50 years.
As a part of this effort, the project leaders are surveying residents to learn what you think about solar and where Minnesota is at with its goals. Please take 5 minutes to complete the survey.
