LANESBORO, Minn. - A solar field is under construction in Lanesboro. Alberta, Canada-based company BluEarth owns and operates the facility. The City of Lanesboro will purchase power generated by the solar field. It's a 20 year agreement.
"Tourism and forward thinking people, I think that Lanesboro really looks for things like this and gets excited about it," says superintendent of Lanesboro Public Utilities Jerod Wagner.
The facility will start creating power by June 1st. It's expected to power roughly 20% of the city.
