A German energy policy expert from the German Embassy in Washington, D.C., will speak at two rural energy forums in Mankato on Friday. Jens Acker will be joined at the forum by a panel of area farmers who have installed solar arrays on their farms. The farmers will speak to their decisions to install the solar arrays, along with their experiences. There are two forums, the frist from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm at South Central College’s Heritage Hall, the second from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm at the Centennial Student Union at Minnesota State University, Mankato.
Attendees at the 11:30 forum at South Central College do need to register in advance as lunch will be served. They can do so here: http://gmg.greatermankato.com/events/What-Minnesota-Can-Learn-From-Germany-on-Energy-Policy-Free-Luncheon-Forum-1052/details
