Solar is booming in Minnesota and across the country, creating a vital opportunity to plant deep-rooted native grasses around and under ground-mounted solar installations. Though early solar projects were planted with gravel, there is growing recognition that pollinator-friendly solar installations can help birds and butterflies as well as improve our water quality, soil, and crop yields. Join Fresh Energy for a conversation with Jordan Macknick, a national energy-water-land expert at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Clare Lindahl, the CEO of the Soil and Water Conservation Society as we explore how we can make pollinator-friendly solar ‘business as usual’ in Minnesota and accelerate the practice elsewhere.
With a dynamic format, Fresh Energy’s Power Pairings breakfast events are an opportunity to hear two leaders share their expertise and participate in an engaging conversation around key energy issues facing Minnesota.
