Minnesota Legislature Approves Solar Gardens Bill!

 This just in!

According to Clean Energy Authority:

The community solar gardens provisions require that such systems are no larger than 1 megawatt. In addition, “The community solar garden program must be designed to offset the energy use of not less than five subscribers in each community solar garden program of which no single subscriber has more than a 40 percent interest,” The legislation said. Also, “The owner of the community solar garden may be a public utility or any other entity or organization that contracts to sell the output from the community solar garden to the utility.” Subscribers to the garden must also purchase at least 200 watts of the garden's generating capacity and can’t purchase more than 120 percent of their average annual energy consumption.
