Minnesota closer to terms on community solar gardens | Midwest Energy News

Minnesota utility regulators on Thursday answered most but not all questions about the shape of a new community solar gardens program.

The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission indicated that it would reject a proposal by the state’s largest electric utility to limit the number of community solar gardens that can be installed per quarter.

The board also voted to set a higher rate for electricity purchased from the shared solar projects than the one originally sought by Xcel Energy, and it said the company must pay for renewable energy credits associated with the solar gardens.
