University of Minnesota-Morris to Host Farm Energy Forum

September 1, 2016 / Categories: Association News, Minnesota Soybean Growers Association

Every day, clean energy technology is becoming more advanced and less expensive. Across rural Minnesota, farmers and small businesses are saving money through new, energy efficient systems – and many have started to explore generating clean, renewable energy on-farm.

Farmers, commodity organization representatives, and agribusiness leaders are invited to join the University of Minnesota-Morris and Minnesota Ag/Energy Roundtable on Sept. 8 for a forum and tour opportunity highlighting the opportunities associated with energy efficiency and renewable energy.

The forum will also include a briefing on key energy policy issues impacting rural Minnesota, and a discussion on the relationship between energy and sustainability for farmers and agribusinesses.

Registration is free, with lunch and refreshments included. To view an updated agenda or RSVP, click here.
