Keep Minnesota moving forward on clean energy
In 2007, Minnesota legislators were right to require any new coal plant to offset the additional carbon pollution with an equal amount of reduced carbon pollution in other projects. State law has been moving Minnesota forward on clean energy while preventing backsliding from new investments in dirty coal. Now, big utility lobbyists are pushing to remove that requirement and allow more coal pollution in Minnesota.
Minnesota should protect current state law that encourages investments in clean energy. We need to make sure our legislators keep Minnesota on the clean energy path and oppose rollbacks that would allow more dirty coal power.
