Fresh Energy’s statement on the new Xcel Energy plan

The goals of Xcel Energy’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) are mostly consistent with Fresh Energy MN’s goals: 80% reduction in carbon use by 2030, 100% reduction by 2050, and elimination of coal use by 2030.

However, Fresh Energy MN still has some concerns with the details of the IRP: the planned construction of a new gas plant in Becker, Minnesota; the absence of energy justice concerns; and the projections for energy demand and infrastructure requirements.

Since Xcel is still accepting public comments on the IRP, it’s important to be informed and express your opinion. Read Fresh Energy MN’s statement here:¬†https://fresh-energy.org/fresh-energy-statement-xcel-energys-integrated-resource-plan/
