Our friends at Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light (MNIPL) are partnering with a non-profit cooperative, Solar United Neighbors (SUN), to promote residential roof-top solar panels. The SUN co-op educates members on the financing of solar power, helps negotiate competitive pricing, and guides members through the process of solar-panel installation. Membership in the co-op is currently available in Minneapolis and surrounding suburbs. Information on joining the co-op is available here. For more on solar power, see the MNIPL website, which includes a webinar on solar panel basics.
Several members of St. John’s have had solar panels installed on their roofs. To contact one of them, or to contact members who are knowledgeable about other eco-friendly practices such as rain gardens and electric cars, click here.
