Bret Pence

Our Sustainability Week series continues on Northland Morning as we speak with Bret Pence, the Arrowhead Network Regional Coordinator for Minnesota Interfaith Power and Light.  Solar energy and the use of "smart" storage batteries home is a reality that not only can serve as a backup for outages but also can provide an ongoing renewable power source that integrates with the existing power grid to reduce dependency on power from fossil fuel sources.  

Duluth has the same potential to generate solar energy as Jacksonville, Florida.  Or Houston, Texas.

Don't believe it?  Ask Bret Pence of Ecolibrium 3 ... or better yet, check out Duluth Shines!

Duluth Shines! is a solar map application that lets you see what kind of solar energy you could generate from your home or business.
