Collaborating to find least-risk, best-value strategies for Minnesota to achieve its solar energy goals
The state goal of reaching 10% solar by 2030 will take Minnesota from 250 megawatts of solar capacity at the end of 2016 to as much as 6 gigawatts by 2030. There are three different types of action needed to get there that will be explored by the MN Solar Pathways project.
Evaluate the potential to use increasing amounts of solar as a generation resource
Identify paths for solar growth that fairly compensate utilities and customers
