We invite solar businesses to partner with us in the Solar Area of The Eco Experience during the Minnesota State Fair. 


As part of The Eco Experience Minnesota State Fair, the solar exhibit walks visitors through the world of solar energy in simple terms with demonstrations of actual equipment. Guests can learn about using energy from the sun to power their home and pick up information about exciting, community-based energy projects. The MRES Connect To The Sun exhibit highlights ways individuals can learn about and support solar energy in their lives.

Eco Experience Solar Area PartnersConnect to the Sun inside and outside this year at The Eco Experience through Solar Area displays demonstrating full-scale home applications to simple hand-held devices. Talk with one of our many volunteers about how you too can Connect to the Sun!
