Minnesota: Xcel Energy must continue Solar Rewards program

We've seen lots of interest in Minnesota for a solar gardens program there. XCEL already has the tools in place - all we need is legislation or PUC action.



ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Xcel Energy must fully fund a solar energy incentive program through 2015, according to a decision Monday by the state.

The decision by Department of Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman means the utility company must fund its Solar Rewards Program at $5 million per year through 2015. Xcel wanted to reduce funding next year and phase out the program by the end of 2013.
