Minnesota wants to be the national leader in renewable energy by 2025
Minnesota is requiring its utilities to generate 25% of their power from renewable sources by 2025. Currently, about 1/2 the power produced there is from coal, and only 8 % from renewable sources.
"The Minnesota law, which sailed through the Legislature, pushes for the use of renewable sources such as wind, water and solar energy and cleaner-burning fuels".
This is good news, and it is one of the most aggressive initiatives in the US. Kudos to the state for this plan. I hope more will follow, particularly to reduce the coal fired pollution.
