We are living in what is being called the “decisive decade”—the actions we take to tackle the global climate crisis between now and 2030 will determine our future.

Fresh Energy is rising to the challenge, working to forge a clean energy future that benefits everyone here in Minnesota, the Midwest, and beyond.

Minnesota has a long history of being our nation’s North Star, and for 30 years, Fresh Energy has helped our state maintain this legacy by enacting innovative, meaningful, and equitable clean energy policy change.

Thanks to you and our community of supporters, Fresh Energy’s future-focused policy work has pushed our power sector to get cleaner and accelerated the transition of carbon-intensive parts of our economy—like buildings and transportation—onto clean electricity. But at this time of unprecedented progress and historic federal investments, we must push harder than ever to do more, faster.

Will you join us with a donation to Fresh Energy to ensure we can continue driving transformational change we need to move the needle on climate change in this decisive decade?

Fresh Energy’s 30th year of advocacy and policy change has been one to celebrate, bringing huge advancements to Minnesota’s clean energy landscape. Not only is the upper Midwest getting a historic $10.3 billion investment in transmission which will help get renewables online faster, but we successfully urged Xcel Energy to both retire the last of its coal plants and invest in new wind, solar, and battery storage instead of new fossil gas plants.

This work is only possible with your support. Join us today as we take the climate change challenge head on and forge a clean energy future that benefits all.
