Covia Helps Brighten Community Gardens

In late 2017, Covia’s two plants in Le Sueur county, Minnesota, began participating in a community solar garden program in partnership with a utility and local developer. Covia subscribed to a 40 percent share of the delivered energy from 10, 1 MW solar gardens that are part of this program. This offsets approximately 14 percent of the plants’ total energy use. In addition to lowering our energy expenses, this program supports community solar garden installations, which increases opportunity for commercial and residential customers to participate in solar developments. This project shows how Covia’s participation in renewable energy can generate value for our business, the environment, and communities.
