Project Description

Project / Program Description

Local governments are uniquely suited to lead by example on solar adoption in Minnesota, but they face barriers related to financial viability, understanding a good deal, and urgency amidst competing priorities. Our team will address these barriers and speed up the adoption of solar on public facilities by coordinating a collaborative Request-for-Proposals on behalf of 20 government entities. By deploying a 3rd-party Power Purchase Agreement financing model, technical assistance, and behavior change strategies, our project will result in 3 Megawatts of solar installed across 15 public facilities in Minnesota.

Project Updates

Our project is on hold as we wait to secure additional partners and funding. We expect that it will commence with a joint RFP for rooftop solar on public buildings in the Spring of 2018.
