Join IPS Solar’s CEO Ralph Jacobson and MN Interfaith Power & Light and Red Lake’s Bob Blake to learn about the challenge the Red Lake Tribe in Northern Minnesota is facing with pollution from fossil fuels and their plans to create energy autonomy!

Ralph is working to finance a solar array with storage on Red Lake Nation’s "Oshki ima aji tah dah" workforce development campus, which Bob Blake's Solar Bear Company will build, and they are looking for local "microloan" investors to make it happen.

This is an opportunity to financially contribute to an important project where your contribution will be paid back with interest. Investments can range from $2,000-$10,000 with a five-year payback and 2.5% interest annually.

In addition to creating clean energy, the Red Lake Solar Project offers Tribe members local economic development through quality job training and employment.

MNIPL is hosting two information sessions to learn more about this exciting opportunity. You can join us at the Twin Cities Friends Meeting, 1725 Grand Ave, St. Paul, on Sunday, October 20th from 6:30-8PM or at St. Luke Presbyterian Church, 3121 Groveland School Rd, Wayzata, on Wednesday, October 23rd from 6:30-8PM.

RSVP for the October 20th event here and for the October 23rd event here.
