KASSON, Minn.- Jim Tinjum is going on an over 1,000 mile bike trip across the Upper Midwest to raise awareness of solar energy and raise money for a distributed solar system for a home in Puerto Rico that takes in children who are displaced. 

The homes usual electricity bill is $100 and the distributed solar system would save them that money every month and instead use it for education and social services.

#BikeTheSun allows Jim to travel to over 50 solar energy sites on an E-bike.
