Solar & Sustainability: The Future Starts Now
This year the Minnesota legislature set an ambitious goal to shift to 100 percent carbon-free electricity by 2040. This means we all have a lot to do as we work collectively to meet that goal.
Here at RREAL, we are ready to:
- Educate and grow the solar energy workforce by expanding our successful Solar Internship Program to Bois Forte and Fon du Lac;
- Build solar projects in Central & Northern Minnesota, including continued Solar for Humanity Projects in partnership with local Habitat chapters;
- Promote solar education to connect with young people across the region and inspire interest in the power of clean energy;
- Launch a majority Indigenous-owned clean energy development company with White Earth-based partners, which will expand solar power and help create jobs for recent graduates of the successful Solar Tech Program we helped create at White Earth Tribal & Community College;
- Work with allies to continue to better understand agrivoltaics and how we can use them to build a more sustainable future for our communities.
Together we can invest in solar projects in Central & Northern Minnesota AND invest in the in future of individuals who will choose to pursue a career in the growing solar energy sector.
Our vision is clean, sustainable, solar energy for all. We believe that, working together with a range of partners and supporters like you, we can pursue energy independence, mitigate our changing climate, reduce energy poverty, and create good jobs in our communities.
With your renewed and continued support, we can:
- Expand solar education and job training opportunities in Minnesota;
- Improve air quality by reducing emissions from fossil fuels;
- Fight climate change by bringing more clean, green, renewable solar power to our region;
- Provide an ongoing solution for energy poverty, helping lower income households and communities reduce energy costs; and
- Share a sense of optimism, knowing we have the power to make a difference, together.
Our time is now. The clean energy future is ours for the making.
