Minnesota Solar Challenge workshop set for St. Paul on Feb. 6


The series of Minnesota Solar Challenge best practices workshops continues on Feb. 6 from 12:30-4 p.m. at the Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust in St. Paul. The workshop is geared to inform local government officials about solar energy best practices in planning, zoning, and permitting, as well as the free assistance offered by the Minnesota Solar Challenge.

The workshop will review the rapidly evolving world of community-scale solar energy markets, technologies, and regulation, with a special emphasis on addressing renewable energy resources in plans, development regulation and building code permitting.
