A Local Solar Energy Standard for Minnesota

placeholderThe following presentation outlines a 10% solar energy standard to be considered by the Minnesota legislature in early 2013. It would require utilities to supply 10% of their energy sales from solar electricity – largely local, distributed solar.  It provides long-term, standard contracts to solar projects with a value of solar production-based price and a production based incentive, helping democratize the production of solar energy.

Needless to say, ILSR is excited about this proposal.
