Earlier this month, hundreds of friends of Fresh Energy, climate advocates, energy enthusiasts, state leaders, and past and present Fresh Energy staff and board members gathered at CityHouse in Saint Paul to celebrate some recent milestones for Fresh Energy. Check out our photo album from the party!
2023 has been a landmark year for our work, and these milestones included new and historic policies in Minnesota, Michael Noble’s “rewirement,” and Fresh Energy’s bright future under the leadership of new executive director, Brenda Cassellius.
We decided to call the party “100% FRESH,” a name inspired by one of Minnesota’s flagship wins this legislative session, the 100% clean electricity bill which was signed into law by Governor Tim Walz in February. Thirty years of Fresh Energy’s clean energy and climate policy progress paved the way for the historic passage of 100% this year, but we’re only just getting started.
All eyes are on Minnesota—but what does it take to make sure we make the most of these opportunities by equitably shaping and deploying the clean energy solutions in Minnesota and the Midwest? Join us to find out on Thursday, October 12, 2023, at our 8th annual Benefit Breakfast with keynote speaker Ramez Naam!
