Minnesota averages 4.6 hours of sunlight a day, according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s renewable energy lab.

“Minnesota is in the middle of the pack compared to other states” in sunlight, said Julia Miller, a spokeswoman for the state Commerce Department, which offers grants for solar equipment made in the state. She said federal studies calculate that Minnesota receives more sunlight than most East Coast states, and the Twin Cities area gets about as much as San Francisco, Houston or Jacksonville, Fla.
