The Metropolitan Council, in conjunction with SunEdison, Oak Leaf Energy and Xcel Energy, unveiled a new 6-acre solar panel array at the Blue Lake Wastewater Treatment facility in Shakopee on Tuesday. The array will provide 1.57 megawatts of power to the facility, replacing 10 percent of the facility’s total energy needs with solar power.  “This is a great example of how public and private entities can work together,” Laura McCarten, regional vice president for Xcel Energy, said at the ceremony.  http://www.swnewsmedia.com/shakopee_valley_news/news/local/acre-solar-array-unveiled-at-blue-lake-wastewater-treatment-plant/article_829ba69c-affb-559e-8ad8-548bf26d09c4.html
