The Denmark Township Homemakers are hosting a Community meeting to learn more about Solar projects that are being planned for Washington County given Xcel Energy plans to double the amount of electricity it gets from wind and solar in the Upper Midwest.
“Customers certainly want cleaner, greener energy, so we are trying to be responsive,” said Chris Clark, president of Xcel’s Upper Midwest division, as quoted in a January 2015 StarTribune article.
On Tuesday, March 24th, Tena Rytel, Solar Project Manager for Aurora Distributed Solar, will present information about a proposed solar farm in Denmark Township and the growing movement for community solar gardens in Washington County. Aurora is a subsidiary of Geronimo Energy, a Minnesota based developer, that is proposing to construct a 100 megawatt solar farm across approximately 25 locations in Minnesota.
The meeting will be held St. Mary’s Episcopal Church (Afton/Basswood Grove) , 8435 St. Croix Trail South, Denmark Township, at 7:30 pm on March 24th. Come and get your questions answered over a cup of coffee with friends and neighbors. All are welcome
