      EVENT DETAILS
      On-Site Solar Workshop

      The Great Plains Institute and the Clean Energy Resources Team are facilitating a renewable energy procurement network to help cities navigate various barriers to renewable energy adoption. This network of local government staff is exploring challenges cities and counties are facing and work toward solutions to enable cities to increase access to renewable energy in their communities. One topic of this network is on-site solar for municipal operations.    This training will provide hands-on technical assistance to governments interested in creating on-site solar energy projects for their municipal operations. It is a follow-up to a broader Renewable Energy Boot Camp hosted in June. This training, with experts from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), will take place from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM in Minneapolis at PrairieCare Institute. This will be in-person only. Training Goals: Increase knowledge of key steps to develop successful on-site solar project. Increase skills in assessing feasibility and economic viability of solar projects for candidate sites and improve understanding of financing options. Identify ways that Minnesota cities can share their experiences via the peer-to-peer network and promote cross-learnings to increase on-site solar projects throughout the state. A one-hour pre-workshop webinar will be held for registered participants on September 9th, 2019 at 2:00pm CT to provide the overarching elements of the on-site solar project development process. A link to the webinar will be sent to all workshop attendees by September 6th. If you cannot participate in the webinar at the desginated time, we'll share the link afterwards and you can listen to it before the workshop on September 18th.
