Minnesota Community Solar Gardens

During the long glorious days of summer, many of us spend hours in our gardens. This summer, a different kind of garden has been in the news in Minnesota – community solar gardens.

As described in a Minnesota Department of Commerce guide, community solar "offers Minnesotans the opportunity to benefit from solar energy without installing a system at their home. As a community solar subscriber ... your share of the electricity generated by the project is credited on your utility bill." Minnesota's community solar garden statute was created by the Minnesota Legislature in 2013. The law directed Xcel Energy to develop a plan for solar gardens and submit it to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC); the PUC was then required to develop guidelines for the operation of the state program. A July 2016 Star Tribune article outlines the recent PUC decisions regarding solar gardens. Additional information about Minnesota's law is provided by the House Research Department information brief, Xcel Energy's Solar Community Garden Program.

Actions by the 2016 legislature give new meaning to the name solar "gardens".  Laws of Minnesota 2016, chapter 181 encourages the planting of native vegetation at solar sites, with the goals of establishing a habitat for birds and pollinators and reducing water runoff. The law specifically mentions two publications that can be used to help establish gardens at solar sites: Prairie Establishment and Maintenance Technical Guidance for Solar Projects (DNR) and the Pollinator Plan (Board of Water and Soil Resources).
