Last week, we provided an overview of New Mexico's recently adopted community solar program, and provided our monthly update on Minnesota's nation-leading program, now with 800 megawatts of capacity!

We've also seen great coverage of our 30 Million Solar Homes impact report, including an excellent article in PV Magazine: Go big and go home: The case for solarizing 30 million homes.

Keep your energy local,
John

P.S. ILSR is behind the first federal composting policy proposal.
