Minnesota Town Powers Facilities with Community Solar

July 9, 2015 By Linda Hardesty

UnknownThe city of Cologne, Minnesota, signed a contract to power up to 100 percent of its city facilities’ energy needs from community solar. The energy will be generated by over 2,700 solar panels in SunShare’s solar gardens currently under development through Xcel Energy’s Solar Rewards Community program. Cologne has a population around 1,500.

Last year, the community solar developer SunShare enrolled the first city in the nation – the City of Manitou Springs, Colorado – to power 100 percent of its city facilities with community solar.
