This year, you are one of more than 20,000 Minnesotans helping guide our work by taking our issue survey and sharing your conservation priorities. During the legislative session that ended in May, more than 10,500 postcards, emails and phone calls were delivered to legislators and Governor Dayton on your behalf, urging them to address your priorities. They didn’t go unnoticed.
You helped us increase renewable energy and spur investment in Minnesota’s solar industry. Here’s how:
- Solar Energy Standard – Large utilities are now required to get 1.5% of their energy from solar by 2020 with a state goal of reaching 10% by 2030.
- Options for Homeowners – Changes to state law make it easier for individuals to realize savings from producing their own renewable energy.
You helped make this possible. I thank you for being such a big part of this important work. Together, we can protect the Minnesota you love!
