City of Edina Solar Garden – 664 kW System
Edina residents now have their own solar garden, but it will likely be hard for most to notice. It’s located on the roof of the Edina Public Works Building and it will send power to more than 68 homes in the community.
It follows a push to find more renewable energy options in the city, but no taxpayer money is being spent.
“We are proud to encourage solar in our community and look forward to future innovation in renewable technologies.”- Casey Casella, City Management Fellow, City of Edina
