The Law of the Sun- A 360-degree view of Minnesota's Solar Laws and Related Construction, Finance, and Regulatory Issues

Event Description

This program has been rescheduled from February 19th to February 20th. Deadline to Register: Tuesday, February 18 

Minnesota has been a top-growth solar market nationally, and solar power is now the lowest-cost source of new power around the world; in 2019, nearly half of all new electricity came from renewable sources. We will look at Minnesota’s solar electricity laws generally, and then walk through all of the legal components of a sound solar development: regulation; permitting; site control; power-purchase agreements and community solar subscriptions; tax credits and other incentives; financing options and consumer protection. We will use a recent case study of a wide-spread, multi-state residential solar fraud to highlight sound practices and warning signs that might cast shade on otherwise bright opportunities for solar power in Minnesota.

This event is co-sponsored by the University of Minnesota's Environmental and Energy Law Society. Check out their Facebook. 

*Lunch will be included. Lunch, registration, and networking will begin at 12:00 pm. The CLE program begins at 12:15pm and goes until 1:15 pm.
