Build a Just Community Solar Garden in Your Community!

We need to increase renewable energy in Minnesota, more than that, we need to do it in a just way. That’s where you come in. Teams are forming across Minnesota to develop a Just Community Solar Garden in their community. Now is the time to join the team and build the just and sustainable solutions we know are vital!  Contact, if you have an idea about how to launch a garden in your community.  You help us find the site, and we can lead you through a process from launch to subscription sales to the final building and celebration of your array.

Each team will be facilitated by MNIPL staff and will guide your community through a four-step process:

  • Core Team Development and Site Identification

  • Kick Off Meeting, where you'll teach others about Community Solar Gardens and how to get started in your community

  • Values Formation Conversation, where you’ll define the values that will guide your team

  • Network Analysis, where you’ll ask, who are we hoping to include? How does this project represent our values?
