Minnesota Commerce Department Receives Excellence in Solar Implementation Award

The Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources, recently accepted the first-annual Excellence in Minnesota Solar Implementation Award from the Minnesota Solar Energy Industry Association (MnSEIA).  The award, presented at MnSEIA’s first-annual Midwest Gateway to Solar Conference, recognizes champions whose work embodies the highest principles of leadership and who work to realize solar energy’s tremendous potential.

“I proudly accept this award on behalf of the Commerce Department’s Division of Energy Resources,” said Janet Streff, manager of the State Energy Office in the Division of Energy Resources. “We are working hard to implement the 2013 energy legislation initiatives. Without the dedicated efforts of our staff and our private and public partners in this work, we would not be where we are today.”

Minnesota is becoming a solar power house.  Just this week, Solar Power Rocks ranked Minnesota the 10th best solar state in the country based on our solar programs and policies—up from No. 24 last year.
