The first few months of 2021 have been exciting for Fresh Energy and our partners working to advance more progressive energy codes in Minnesota.
We Must Update Residential Energy Code to Benefit All Minnesotans
Minnesota’s residential energy code exists for the benefit of all Minnesotans and we can’t let Minnesota fall behind.
Putting money back into Minnesota schools’ budgets
Public schools across Minnesota will be learning more about their energy use—and identifying new strategies for conservation and savings—thanks to a new law secured during the 2019 legislative session with leadership from Fresh Energy.
Cold weather and energy efficiency: what’s the connection?
The polar vortex has left our region, but as climate change accelerates, extreme weather in the Midwest will continue to occur. Could more efficient buildings help solve the clean energy equation?
Minnesota shouldn’t bypass regular residential energy code updates
Fresh Energy believes that incorporating the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code residential provisions in the 2020 Minnesota Building Code is in the best interest of Minnesotans. Find out why.
Bringing older homes into the electric economy
As wind and solar markets grow, Minnesota’s electricity is getting cleaner and it’s becoming increasingly beneficial to power more of our economy with electricity. Just because you live in an old house doesn’t mean you can’t move toward a carbon-free, electric economy.
