Solar for Your Community
Date & Time: Friday, June 21, 11:00 am
Location: Orange Flag Tent
Learn how Organic Valley and OneEnergy Renewables partnered with Midwest municipalities, cities and partner businesses to build over 30 megawatts of solar projects across 10 projects in 3 states. This presentation will highlight the unique business partnership that kickstarted these projects, pitfalls encountered along the way, and lessons to be learned for other communities and companies who have an interest in growing the solar market especially in states without strong policy drivers for small utility-scale solar projects, with a highlight on our approach to integrating agriculturally beneficial plantings beneath the arrays, including pasture for sheep at some sites and pollinator habitat for others.
