$20,000 goal

/ 150


Help us to raise $20,000 by December 31, 2021 to pursue these goals in 2022:

  • Implement an Accredited Associate Degree Solar Program at White Earth Tribal & Community CollegeMinnesota’s second such program, including NABCEP certification and field work experience with Minnesota Power on utility grade projects, on projects for White Earth, and on Solar for Humanity homes.
  • Launch a majority Native-owned clean energy contracting company with our White Earth partners.
  • Reduce energy poverty and create long-term housing stability by completing 15 Solar for Humanity projects with rural Habitat partners.
  • Work with Minnesota Venture Farms to break ground on five 4,000 square foot solar-powered greenhouses at five rural locations, including one at RREAL’s headquarters in Backus and one at White Earth. Solar greenhouses are an opportunity to address a double bottom line fighting poverty: food & energy.
  • Proactively pursue opportunities to build solar on schools and utilize RREAL’s K-12 Solar Curriculum via the State of Minnesota’s new Solar on Schools legislation.
