Twin Cities Area Solar Co-op Makes Rooftop Solar More Affordable

By BOBBY KING, MN SUN State Director

Jessica Tank and partner Royce, Minneapolis Solar Co-op members and City of Lakes Community Land Trust homeowners, LMI program participant

Nonprofit Solar United Neighbors (SUN) helps Twin City Area homeowners of all incomes go solar with the Twin Cities Area Solar Co-op. The solar co-op will help homeowners:

  • Understand the benefits of rooftop solar and the incentives available
  • Allow them to use group buying power for a great price and service from a solar installer
  • Help low-income homeowners tap into incentives that can cover a majority of the cost

How SUN’s Solar Co-ops Work.
The solar co-op is free to join. SUN has an open-and-competitive bidding process with local solar installers for the group’s business. A committee of co-op members and SUN staff reviews bids and selects a single solar company for the group’s business. All members then get a proposal for solar at their property from the selected installer at the solar co-op price. There is no obligation to go solar.

Online Solar 101’s are scheduled for Thur., Jan 18 at 6:30 p.m. and Tue., Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m.
These will cover the basics of solar technology, the economics of solar, and how members save money on a vetted solar installer.… Read the rest “Twin Cities Area Solar Co-op Makes Rooftop Solar More Affordable”

In researching what film I was going to see at the theater on Thursday, December 5, I accidently came across Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli’s Dream Scenario, starring Nicholas Cage. It was a good choice.


Paul Matthews (Nicolas Cage) is a nondescript professor of evolutionary science at a small fictional college. His students seem to be as incurious as he is tedious. Paul’s life begins to change drastically when his youngest daughter, Sophie (Lily Bird), starts to see him in her dreams. Paul appears to have the power of levitation in Sophie’s dreams, although it is not explained neither how or why he has this power. Everything seems innocent enough until his ex-wife, Claire (Marnie McPhail), runs into Paul with his current wife, Janet (Julianne Nicholson), at an event. Claire tells them both she sees Paul in her dreams, much to the couple’s chagrin. Claire insists that she see him alone to explain the phantasmagoria and Janet grudgingly agrees. And at this point, it may not be all that weird. After all, she was once married to him.

Then the dream syndrome takes a bizarre and dangerous turn when his students begin to have dreams where Paul appears.… Read the rest “Dream Scenario”
