|Rural Renewable Energy Roundtable|
|Events by Saker, Kasson|
|11:00 AM to 4:00 PM|
Germany’s farmers were leaders in that country’s remarkable renewable energy development. Southern Minnesota is seeing a significant increase in renewable energy development. It is the state’s area with the best wind resources and is home to wind parks and, more recently, new development of utility scale solar. Awareness of the opportunities and access to people with specific experience is not widespread.
This forum is designed to provide MN farmers, especially in the state’s southern area, the opportunity to speak with two German farmers who have turned their participation in Germany’s energy transition to longterm economic advantage. Participants in the roundtable discussion will also learn about some of the latest technology that helps farmers capture added energy value.
