Get the Buzz: Research shows solar habitat installations support pollinators

May 18, 2022 

12:00-1:00 pm on Zoom

Bees, monarchs, and other critical pollinators are disappearing, and scientists agree that loss of habitat is a primary concern. However, research has found that the renewable energy sector provides a unique opportunity for creating new pollinator habitat.

Join Monarch Joint Venture, Connexus Energy, MNL, and Fresh Energy for a free webinar where we dig into the new study, “Monitoring Pollinators on Minnesota Solar Installation,” which used field data collection practices to document an abundance of bees, butterflies, moths, flies, and wasps utilizing pollinator-friendly solar habitat in Minnesota. We’ll also discuss seed mixes and biodiversity benefits, how utilities and co-ops can lead, and more.

Register for the webinar on the Fresh Energy website.
