NRS Site Visit - Solar Met Station in Colorado

NRS solar developers Roger “Hal” Halbakken and Brad Wilson visited NRS project development sites in Colorado in early February, including a stop at the site of our “Honors Energy” utility-scale solar project.

NRS became a major sponsor at this year's Colorado Solar and Storage Association Mountain West Conference (COSSA). Their mission is to expand solar and storage markets in Colorado by working with hundreds of solar business members to advance solar and storage policy, remove market barriers, highlight emerging trends, and promote solar and storage outreach and education.  ​NRS met with several entities and organizations during the conference who provided valuable insight about their energy transition future in Colorado. The NRS team is excited to be a part of this great association.

Here's some of the group making the most of Minnesota's winter with some ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka. There may have even been one fish caught amongst the pizza dinner and great conversation!
