Many people may not know that Minnesota is a national clean energy leader with currently more than 59,000 well-paying clean energy jobs. The Power of Minnesota was created to highlight the benefits and successes of solar and wind power projects throughout the state, and to foster community engagement and awareness. The documentary features stories about the many ways in which clean energy is helping families and communities throughout Minnesota, many of them in the Southwest and West Central parts of the state.

The documentary spotlights students and staff at Minnesota West in Canby where the event is being held, which offers a Wind Energy Technology program that provides hands-on training preparing students for highly-skilled work on wind turbines.

This promises to be a fun evening with interesting conversation, meeting both new and familiar friends, as well as complimentary appetizers and desserts. Friends, family, community members, and colleagues are invited to this free event as well. Pioneer will also be premiering a new episode of their popular Prairie Sportsman program about how prairie is being planted under and around large solar arrays in Minnesota to create habitat for local wildlife and pollinators.
