Because of payments made from solar and other renewable energy projects, some rural communities are able to provide highspeed internet access in places where there is none today.  This high speed access is vital as schools and businesses increasingly rely heavily on remote learning and work from home.

Rural economic development experts from across the state support new solar projects.

 

They create local jobs, make investments directly into our rural communities and help protect our agricultural heritage and preserve farmland.
