With Lissa Pawlisch - Director, Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs)

University of Minnesota Extension's Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships



Did you know Minnesota installed enough community solar projects to power over 13,000 homes since December? This month, we focus on Minnesota's efforts to advance clean energy, trends and developments, and how community members like you can participate.
We’re joined by Lissa Pawlisch.  Over the past thirteen years she has guided CERTs—a unique program partnership designed to connect individuals and communities to the resources they need to identify and implement community scale clean energy projects. After an environmental consulting stint, she got her Masters in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy. Lissa is passionate about working directly with communities to help them understand their energy options, the values that drive their projects, how technologies and practices can be deployed, and how to harness community capacity to affect change. Her current focus areas include community shared solar and local government clean energy adoption.

As usual, invite anyone interested--free and open to the public. Come, buy your coffee (the law is you can't bring food or drinks into a restaurant), learn a lot and have your questions ready.
