Verndale School is on track to receive a grant for solar panels

The Minnesota Department of Commerce Solar for Schools Program is on track to award about $7.5 million in grants for up to 80 schools in 45 school districts across the state. The Verndale Public School District is one of the districts that has been invited by the Commerce Solar for Schools Program to submit a full application.

The grants will cover up to 95% of costs for the schools, based on their financial need, allowing schools to install solar panels on school rooftops or school grounds. The projects would add renewable energy as a source to power schools and offer over 160 thousand students with hands-on learning about solar power and renewable energy technology. . .
