The Minnesota Legislature has proposed a bill (HF7/SF4) to transition all electricity sold in the state to be carbon-free by 2040. The bill must consider potential impacts to the reliability and affordability of the essential electric service provided by Minnesota cooperative utilities to their 1.7 million members. We must remain unified and make our voices heard to ensure the transition to carbon-free energy maintains the affordability and reliability of electricity for all of Minnesota residents, especially rural electric cooperative member-owners.
If you are a Minnesota resident who would like to reach out to elected officials to voice your concerns, the Minnesota Rural Electric Association has created an easy online form to do so, including a pre-drafted message to your policy makers. Just follow the link below and let your voice be heard!
