Earlier this week Saint Paul RiverCentre’s parking ramp was outfitted with almost 350 photovoltaic solar panels, funded in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and Minnesota Department of Commerce.  

Thanks to better designed panels, some of which are made here in Minnesota, installation is cheaper and safer than ever.  Major Minnesota companies are getting on board to both save money on utility costs and reduce environmental impacts.
