Why My Company Joined MnSEIA:

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

US SOLAR

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.
