Renewable Energy Partners
REP’s goals are:
· Develop solar energy and other energy projects with community benefits
· Provide electrical and construction labor for Minnesota’s solar energy market
· Offer training and jobs for BIPOC workers in utility and energy-related careers
Through its subsidiary, Northgate Development, LLC, REP has developed the Regional Apprenticeship Training Center (RATC) in North Minneapolis. RATC offers accessible skills training in advanced energy technologies and STEM-related fields for low-income and BIPOC residents in under-served communities. RATC also serves as a demonstration site for solar PV-plus-storage, ground-source heat pumps and electrification, energy control systems, electric vehicle charging, and comprehensive on-site stormwater management.
