"...while creating well-paying, permanent jobs across the state."--------------------------Can only wonder how many will have to lose their jobs for each one of these newly created jobs.
Then Mr. Dayton went on to sign an executive order loosening government regulations on gasoline companies in order to provide working families the relief they need from government induced high energy prices.
This is exciting. Minnesota does have a very good solar resource, and many local companies to take advantage of it, from manufacturers of the various components to the electricians and professionals who install it. And solar helps keep more money in-state, instead of spending it on imported fuel. 1.5% is a modest goal, but it'll have a positive impact on our environment. It's fitting that this was signed yesterday; judging by the array on my roof, yesterday was one of the best days for solar energy in the past 3 years - my 11-panel array made over 18kWh of clean energy yesterday for me and my neighbors.
Last month the DFL paid back a couple of Iron Range manufacturers of solar panels by requiring the state buy their products.
phatcatpat, as far as I know that requirement was not in the final bill. Look for HF 729 and search for "solar energy in state buildings" - I do not think it made it through the conference committee.
I hope this is a profitable as ethanol! Thats been so awesome!!!!
