The Metropolitan Council (SolSmart Gold)
Earlier this year, the Metropolitan Council became SolSmart’s first regional organization designee for its leadership in advancing solar energy across the Minneapolis-Saint Paul region. The Met Council has advised over 80 communities, including 18 SolSmart designees, offering resources and technical assistance on issues such as solar permitting, planning, and market development and finance. They also spearheaded the “MN Brightfields Initiative,” which has led to a statewide study on solar on closed landfills, and has committed to shifting the region to 100 percent electric bus procurements by the year 2022.
