HOYT LAKES, MN. (Northern News Now) - Minnesota Power held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their Laskin Solar Project in Hoyt Lakes on June 2.

The 5.6 megawatt array will produce enough clean, local energy to power about 1,100 homes.

This was one of Minnesota Power’s three solar projects approved by the state to help boost the region’s economy after the pandemic.

All the projects have been made using local labor and locally sourced panels.
