OUR GOALS
Minnesota’s energy policy must enable businesses to obtain competitively-priced, reliable electricity and transportation fuel while minimizing environmental impacts. Competitively-priced, reliable electricity is critical to the health of Minnesota’s economy. Unfortunately, Minnesota’s commercial and industrial (C&I) power rates have increased faster than the U.S. average and faster than inflation, and in many cases are higher than in neighboring states.

OUR 2017 LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES FOR ENERGY

  • Reform the Public Utilities Commission and Department of Commerce.
  • Achieve sustainability goals without compromising efforts to make Minnesota rates more competitive.
  • Oppose an increase in the Renewable Energy Standard.
