BAYFIELD – Along with the arrival of spring has also come the possibility of solar community farms taking root in Northern Wisconsin.

Since March 10, Northland College Sigurd Olson Environmental Institute (SOEI) has been hosting a climate change lecture series called, “Global Problem, Local Solutions” at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center (NGLVC). On April 28, a beam of light shone down on “Solar Power for Northern Wisconsin” with guest speaker Tyler Huebner, executive director at RENEW Wisconsin. Filled to capacity, this enthusiasm also spilled over into the following day at Big Water Coffee Roasters in Bayfield where 40 people gathered to hear Huebner speak once again and discuss the possibility of solar farms in the region.
