[ARCHIVED] Elk River Selected for a Hometown Solar Grant

Elk River City Hall in Full SunThe Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (MMPA) has chosen the City of Elk River to receive a Hometown Solar Grant, which will fund the implementation of a 5 kW solar installation at city hall. The purpose of the Hometown Solar Grant program is to provide our community with an educational asset to teach people how sunlight is converted into electricity and the unique characteristics of solar power. In the grant application, city and Elk River Municipal Utilities (ERMU) staff explained why city hall was a great location for a solar installation, aligning with this program’s goals, but also broadening the sustainability goals already in place here as Minnesota’s designated Energy City.

Both the City of Elk River and ERMU are eager to utilize this solar demonstration for community awareness and education, following its installation sometime this summer. Thank you, MMPA! To learn more about Elk River’s Energy City designation, click here.
