Project Description: 

Cooperative Energy Futures is developing our first community solar garden on the roof of Shiloh Temple International Ministries in North Minneapolis. The solar garden will provide enough power for about 50 households, and members of the congregation and local residents will have first priority to subscribe. CEF is working in partnership with Renewable Energy Partners to conduct on-the-job training for local North Minneapolis residents through this project to advance racial equity in hiring in the solar industry. CEF is collaborating with Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light and organizers connected with Shiloh Temple, Neighborhoods Organizing for Change, and Sierra Club Northstar to engage local community members and communities of faith in this solar garden.
