You may not even know it’s there. …and that’s a big part of why the Slayton Solar Array is so appealing.
Solar installations are up dramatically in Minnesota and across the United States. In Minnesota, twice as much solar capacity was installed in 2012 compared with the prior year, as more than 250 projects, large and small, went online, state data shows.
“There was no celebration, but it is nice to get these things running,” said Chris Little, director of development for Ecos Energy, based in Minneapolis.
It is Minnesota’s largest photovoltaic solar project, as well as one of the largest of its kind in the upper midwest.
