Minnesota’s New Clean-Energy Policy: Two Years Later

How has Minnesota’s Omnibus Energy Bill, HF 2834, changed the climate for clean energy in the state since its signature on May 24, 2013? Heralded as a bold action to make Minnesota a national leader in clean energy, the multifaceted bill established a solar carve-out in addition to the state’s existing renewable portfolio standard. It also created a community solar program and reformed Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) policies. However, perhaps the most significant change was the new law’s use of the Value of Solar model that replaced net metering.
