FMR is excited to be a promotional partner for Fresh Energy’s Good Energy Power Pairing breakfast. Because of our partnership, FMR supporters are eligible for 20% off general admission tickets using the coupon code PARTNER. 

Solar is booming in Minnesota and across the country, creating a vital opportunity to plant deep-rooted native grasses around and under ground-mounted solar installations that help birds and butterflies as well as improve our water quality, soil, and crop yields.

Join Fresh Energy for a conversation with Jordan Macknick, a national energy-water-land expert at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and Clare Lindahl, the CEO of the Soil and Water Conservation Society to explore how we can make pollinator-friendly solar ‘business as usual’ in Minnesota and accelerate the practice elsewhere.

General Admission tickets are normally $45 but are $36 for FMR members who register with the code PARTNER. Register by April 26 to receive an additional early bird discount during checkout. 

Participation is limited, and tickets are going fast. Learn more from Fresh Energy!
