In Minnesota, the BlueGreen Alliance is working to expand solar energy capacity on public buildings and is a partner in the Solar Works for Minnesota campaign. In addition, we are working to retrofit public schools, libraries and state-owned buildings, putting an end to wasted energy and taxpayer dollars while getting Minnesotans back to work. The Jobs21! campaign effort in Minnesota is led by former Minnesota Senate Assistant Majority Leader Tarryl Clark, who serves as the National Co-Chair for the Jobs21! campaign.
