We’re closing in on our $50,000 fundraising goal!
Donate $25 now to put solar in the path of KXL

**UPDATE: Due to windy forecast for Monday, Oct. 30 the installation has been postponed to Thursday, Nov. 2.

Join Bold Nebraska on Thursday, Nov. 2 for the next Solar XL installations on the farm of Bob and Nancy Allpress near Naper, NE.

The solar panels will help power the homes of Nebraskans resisting Keystone XL, and are being installed by the family-owned rural solar business, North Star Solar Bears, run by Jim Knopik.

The first “Solar XL” installation in the path of KXL was erected on July 29th on the farm of Jim and Chris Carlson — who rejected a $307,000 offer from the pipeline company TransCanada to build Keystone XL through their backyard, and the second Solar XL installation in the path of KXL (seen in photo above) was completed on Sept. 16 at Prairierose Farm, owned by landowners Diana and Terry “Stix” Steskal.

Bold Nebraska,, Indigenous Environmental Network, CREDO, and Oil Change International are the sponsors of the Solar XL project, which underscores the need to center solutions to climate change while rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline and resisting the expansion of the fossil fuel industry.
