Edina residents now have their own solar garden. But it will likely be hard for most to notice.
It's located on the roof of the Edina Public Works Building. And it will send power to more than 68 homes in the community.
It follows a push to find more renewable energy options in the city. But no taxpayer money is being spent.
Instead, the city is partnering with solar company Cooperative Energy Futures, which will run and maintain the solar garden.
Chicago County is home to one of the largest solar farms in the Upper Midwest. Located near North Branch, the 1,100-acre site is expected to provide power to supply more than 20,000 homes a year.
