Fresh Energy Statement: Thorough Evaluation of Line 3 is the Right Approach for Minnesota

By |

Fresh Energy applauds Governor Walz and his administration for its continued commitment to the health and safety of Minnesotans, as well as the protection of our sensitive ecosystems and waterways, while reducing our state’s dependence upon fossil fuels. Clean electric transportation when used in tandem with clean, affordable electricity like wind and solar is the best strategy Minnesota has for achieving energy independence and reducing climate-harming emissions. 

“With cleaner transportation options becoming ever more accessible to Minnesotans, the Walz Administration is right to ensure that expensive projects like Line 3 are appropriately scrutinized,” said Anjali Bains, Senior Policy Associate, Beneficial Electrification at Fresh Energy. “We are grateful to Governor Walz and the Minnesota Department of Commerce for continuing this critical process.”
