Minnesota is on a clean energy path, creating thousands of jobs while cutting carbon pollution. But as we implement increasing amounts of efficiency and renewable energy, Minnesota needs to close the loopholes that allow the biggest cause of global warming—coal-burning power plants—to continue emitting massive, unlimited amounts of carbon pollution into the air.
In the upcoming year, Fresh Energy is working to help Minnesota make greater strides in ensuring our electricity system is good for the health of our families, communities, and natural areas. This spring, Fresh Energy’s J. Drake Hamilton will discuss the landmark opportunities for carbon reduction in Minnesota’s electricity sector at several different events.
