The University of Minnesota has announced it is tapping into a new source of power. With the recent approval from the university’s board of regents, the institution’s Twin Cities campus will purchase 2 MW of community solar garden subscriptions from Minneapolis-based Geronimo Energy LLC.
“This is an important step for the university and our sustainability efforts,” said Shane Stennes, the university’s director of sustainability. “We anticipate significant savings of nearly $800,000 over the 25-year contract while supporting the development of new renewable energy resources in the state of Minnesota.”
