This year, Minnesotans have started writing a hopeful new chapter in our state’s climate story. We know that to prevent the worst impacts of climate change, we need to meet and exceed our state’s greenhouse gas reduction goals, and thanks to your support, we are within striking distance for the first time ever.
In January, the Minnesota Legislature moved quickly to act on climate as a policy priority. At the top of the list was a long-time goal for Fresh Energy—100% clean electricity—which this year was also a key issue for the legislature and the Walz Administration. The Fresh Energy team worked tirelessly to ensure this bill became law—leading Minnesota to 100% clean electricity by 2040. 100% lays the policy foundation for clean energy progress going forward, but I cannot stress enough: clean electricity for Minnesotans is and must be just the beginning.
Fresh Energy is rising to meet the moment and with your partnership, we can keep driving the transformational change we need to avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
As we look ahead to the critical next steps that will build upon momentum set by the 100% clean electricity law, we are laser-focused on:
We are sharing a collective moment where our clean energy future is taking shape before our very eyes. Will you join us in being an active participant?
