I think you guys better take a look in the mirror before shooting off your mouths about low information voters!! Ha Ha! My observation is there are a lot of them gathered right here in the Swamp. Oh, there's plenty of "information" slopping around down here, but much of it is distorted and from tainted sources. My guess is most American voters would probably fall into your category of Low Information Voters and the country has made it through a couple centuries. Maybe we're not perfect but the good ol' USA is still the greatest country earth has seen. And we don't need some twisted dunderhead to fix it either! Ha Ha!

Not sure when they put in the solar grid as I wasn't there last year but it is massive. Must be selling power off of that as I don't think they need that much power there.
It took a couple days here to run across the article from the Morrison County Record, but here's a little info on the solar panels.
Completed in October 2016.
Can generate 10 megawatts.
Panel field is 63 acres in size.
$25 million to build.
The energy will meet or exceed what camp uses. The project provides a redundant energy supply to their natural gas in case of emergency.
Minnesota Power stated the solar field is capable of supplying enough energy for 2000 homes for one year.
Normally the power will go back into the grid and satisfy 1/3 of the requirement for MP&L to generate "GREEN" energy as mandated by the State in 2013.
One could probably look the article up on the page but those are the high points.
Is this what we call an embarrassing win!!?
