Falcon Heights to host community solar garden workshop

Are you interested in going solar but unable to do so on your own? Find out about becoming a subscriber to a Community Solar Garden (CSG) at a workshop with an expert from Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERT).

The one-hour informational event will be held on Tuesday, April 5, at 7:30 p.m. at Falcon Heights City Hall, 2077 W. Larpenteur Ave. The city’s Environment Commission is sponsoring the workshop for residents as well as those living in surrounding communities.

Trevor Drake of Metro CERTs will explain what a CSG project is, who the key players are in getting the project up and running, and how subscribers support the project and determine the level at which they participate.

City resident Phil Behrens will also be on hand to give an overview of his recent experience signing up with a solar garden developer. Other pertinent topics will also be covered as time permits, with a question-and-answer session following the presentations.
