Just wanted to let everyone at Solar Gardens Midwest know that MRES in MN  received a grant to do research on Community Solar in order to give us the cred to move forward on one after this is done:

Minnesota Renewable Energy Society – Community Solar Background Study
Minneapolis, MN – The Minnesota Renewable Energy Society (MRES) is a member-run non-profit organization founded in 1978 to promote the use of renewable energies in Minnesota through education and through the demonstration of practical applications. The MRES Community Solar Background Study is a first step toward increasing the accessibility and affordability of solar energy by establishing groundwork for a Community Solar Program pilot project. MRES’s goal is to make investing in clean energy accessible regardless of income, home rental/ownership status or site viability. This Background Study will build on existing research and case studies from community solar initiatives around the country. The work completed under this grant will enable MRES to pursue next-step project implementation funding for a Community Solar Program model that has been vetted by experts and community stakeholders for feasibility in Minnesota’s regulatory, legal, and social context. (Renewable Energy: Solar Electric; $2,000)

Rosie Hoyem will be doing the research, she may be contacting people (Joy especially) in the next 6 months or so to talk about this!
