Fresh Energy’s Gas Decarbonization program is the first of its kind in the state and will be pivotal to moving toward a future where buildings and industries are powered by clean electricity instead of fossil gas.
Heat pumps have been having a “moment” lately—and rightfully so. Avoiding the worst impacts of climate change means transitioning our entire economy, starting here in Minnesota, to be carbon-neutral by 2050. That requires a dramatic change in the energy that powers our homes, businesses, and workplaces, shifting away from burning fossil fuels towards using zero- and low-carbon alternatives. Heat pumps can help us make that transition.
The first few months of 2021 have been exciting for Fresh Energy and our partners working to advance more progressive energy codes in Minnesota.
Minnesota’s residential energy code exists for the benefit of all Minnesotans and we can’t let Minnesota fall behind.
