Why My Company Joined MnSEIA:

SunPower is excited to strengthen its ties to Minnesota by joining MnSEIA and its President’s Circle. As one of the nation’s leading installers of residential solar and solar+storage, SunPower is looking forward to growing its presence in Minnesota and knows that MnSEIA will be an invaluable partner in helping us expand access to solar for Minnesotans.  
Suzanne Leta, Senior Director, Head of Policy & Strategy for SunPower
As a solar distributor, meeting and making connections with local solar companies is crucial to the success of our business in Minnesota. Greentech Renewables is a MnSEIA member so we can stay informed on state policy, meet the movers and shakers of the industry, and support their work to grow Minnesota solar.
Geoff Stenrick, Greentech Renewables
Knobelsdorff has been a proud supporter of MnSEIA for 6+ years. We continue to support the organization for many reasons, mainly because MnSEIA does a great job navigating the complexities of legislation at both the State and Federal level. Gateway to Solar, MnSEIA’s annual conference, is also a valuable networking event we benefit from each year.
As an engineering and environmental consulting firm working in the renewable field for decades, MnSEIA membership puts Barr in the middle of the solar + storage movement in Minnesota. Our active involvement opens doors to partnerships with the utilities, developers, public entities, tribes, and commercial and industrial companies in solar + storage. MnSEIA's ongoing engagement with policymakers helps us anticipate, adapt, and respond to policy as it develops.
Andy Polzin, Barr Engineering Co, MnSEIA Board Member
MnSEIA membership is essential for anyone focused on moving solar forward in Minnesota. MnSEIA is a leader in advancing policy at the state legislature and PUC that is needed to make more solar possible. As a MnSEIA member, you help shape the policy priorities through discussions with other members who are leaders in the state’s solar industry.
Bobby King, Minnesota Director of Solar United Neighbors
US Solar is a MnSEIA member because it’s a great forum to discuss regulatory and legislative initiatives for our state - and their policy staff are qualified and effective.
MnSEIA is a leader for solar policy change, as advocates on behalf of each member, and providing the education and networking we all need for smarter business. The organization has our backs when the winds that blow against solar energy arise. Our business, native habitat restoration on solar sites, is more informed, better connected and more successful because of the work MnSEIA does. It was an easy decision to become President’s Circle members and supporters.
Colleen Hollinger, Natural Resource Services
