POLICY FORUM SERIES: ADDRESSING BARRIERS TO COMMUNITY SOLAR

October 27, 2016
1644 Larpenteur Avenue West Falcon Heights, MN 55113
TIES Conference Center

In 2013, the state passed legislation to enable community solar garden programs in Minnesota. These programs, also known as “shared solar” or “community solar,” present an exciting opportunity for consumers to participate in solar markets without having to install their own solar electric systems. Since 2013, growth in community solar garden subscribership has demonstrated the tremendous consumer interest in solar energy, but has also revealed a complex suite of barriers—regulatory, financial, and social. These barriers will need to be addressed if we are to unlock the full potential of community solar in Minnesota.
