Clean Power Plan: Greater MN Community Listening Sessions

February 16, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) invites you to join us at our upcoming community listening sessions on the Clean Power Plan.

The Clean Power Plan is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new rule requiring states to cut carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants (for more information, visitwww.epa.gov/cleanpowerplan). The Clean Power Plan will encourage the development of cleaner energy and energy conservation. EPA has set a target for states to meet, and the MPCA must now develop a plan to comply with EPA’s rule. Before we develop our plan, we want to hear what Minnesotans’ interests and concerns are related to the Clean Power Plan and clean energy.

We have four events coming up around Minnesota to hear from you! The events will start with an open house where MPCA staff will be available to answer questions and chat with stakeholders one-on-one. The listening session will immediately follow the open house. We’ll provide a bit of background on the Clean Power Plan and our expected schedules and requirements, and most importantly, will listen to what YOU have to say.

All meetings will follow this schedule:

  • 5:30PM-6:30PM: Open house/talk one-on-one with MPCA staff
  • 6:30PM-8PM: Meeting/listening session begins

MPCA staff will be available for follow up questions after the meeting
