Minnesota Clean Energy & Jobs on Twitter

Join us at your neighborhood coffee shop for a conversation about clean energy and jobs

April 26th, 2013

Interested in solar power and clean energy jobs? Join us for a conversation at your neighborhood coffee shop!

In 2007, Minnesota passed a Renewable Energy Standard (RES) requiring 25 percent renewable electricity (mainly wind power) by the year 2025. As a result, Minnesota’s wind industry created thousands of high-paid jobs, invigorated rural economies, produced cleaner air, and spurred a transition from fossil fuels to clean renewable energy.

Tens of thousands of Minnesotans across the state have decided that we must take the next step to expand clean energy and jobs for a stronger economy, cleaner air, and greater energy self-sufficiency in Minnesota.

Find out what that next step entails. Join us at your local coffee shop as we hold several one-hour coffees in the next several weeks to discuss next steps in Minnesota. Please register here.
