ST. PAUL – A guide to help Minnesota farmers navigate through legal contracts and other issues stalling large-scale solar and wind installations is now available.
The “Farmers’ Guide to Solar and Wind Energy in Minnesota” was developed by the Minnesota Farmers Union and the St. Paul-based Farmers’ Legal Action Group as a resource for farmers considering solar and wind installations on their land.
“Solar and wind energy can be great value additions to some family farms, especially in a time of low farm income,” said Gary Wertish, president of the Minnesota Farmers Union. “We worked on this guide to help farmers get the information they need about these energy projects.”
The 32-page guide is intended as a starting point for farmers who are considering large-scale solar or wind projects. Farmers, farm advocates, farm attorneys and others are welcome to consult, download, print or share the guide at no cost.
The guide is available at: www.mfu.org/farmers-guide-to-solar-and-wind/ or to print as a PDF it’s available at: www.flaginc.org/2019/04/farmers-guide-to-solar-and-wind-energy-in-minnes….
