New funding from state lawmakers puts solar energy on the syllabus this school year. The Omnibus Commerce & Energy Bill, passed in June and supported by Conservation Minnesota, promises $21 million for as many as 350 K–12 schools and community colleges to install rooftop solar panels.

School solar installations get kids thinking about renewable energy, reduce energy costs, and create clean energy jobs. This new push for rooftop solar power is a great step toward a more sustainable Minnesota.
