On Wednesday May 10, nearly 150 energy leaders and other concerned Minnesotans gathered to explore a more electric future—hundreds more joined via Facebook live. The event was part of Fresh Energy’s popular Power Pairings series.
Fresh Energy and a team of partners have launched Charge Up Midwest, a campaign to speed the transition to electric vehicles and reduce carbon emissions from transportation across the region.
For 25 years, Fresh Energy has been working to transition to a clean energy system in the state. Increasingly we see that an “all-electric economy” may just be the answer.
As part of Charge Up Midwest, a new partnership aimed at catalyzing Midwest leadership on electric vehicles, Fresh Energy is happy to see Chicago selected as one of 11 cities nationwide for targeted investments. Senior Policy Associate Andrew Twite offered the following statement in response to the announcement.
