Jessica Looman is feeling pretty good about the state of solar energy in Minnesota.
What's got the state commerce commissioner "walking on sunshine"?
Minnesota's solar capacity between 2015 and 2016 grew almost three times - to put that in perspective, the 476 megawatts added in 2017 is enough electricity to power 53,000 more homes.
Add to that declining prices, increased consumer demand and 57,000 clean energy jobs in the state, Minnesotans may be inclined to quote Timbuk 3 from back in the day: "The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades".
Anyone who's ever fallen in love or had their heart broken can tell you exactly where it happened. And what places they seek out or avoid as a result. So it's no real surprise that Rebecca Krinke's "Emotional Cartography" project to explore the intersection of place and emotion resonated with so many people.
