Minnesota Commits to 100% Clean Electricity by 2040 with Ambitious New Legislation

New Bill Creates Call to Action for Utilities Operators and Businesses Alike

Minnesota has joined over 20 states who have implemented climate action legislation with a commitment to transition to 100% clean electricity by 2040. On February 7, Governor Tim Walz signed the clean energy bill (HF7) into law, putting Minnesota on track to pursue one of the country’s most accelerated timelines to make the switch away from fossil fuel energy sources.
