Community Solar Gardens are centrally-located solar photovoltaic (PV) systems that provide electricity to participating subscribers. A free public seminar hosted by Clean Energy Resource Teams will provide participants with information and resources to better understand community solar gardens (http://www.cleanenergyresourceteams.org/solargardens).

Time: 3:304:30 p.m Wednesday, January 27.

Place: 105 Cargill Building, University of Minnesota St. Paul Campus.


Community solar projects have been enabled by the Minnesota legislature and provide and opportunity for individual participation in larger scale solar. Called Community Solar Gardens, these are centrally located solar photovoltaic (PV) systems that provide electricity to participating subscribers. The Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) provide consumers with resources to better understand community solar garden projects and implement community based clean energy projects. .

In this free public seminar, CERTS Director Lissa Pawlisch will provide an overview of community solar gardens and resources available to consumers.
