Global Warming Solutions
Fresh Energy is helping Minnesota continue its successful progress in reducing the use of fossil fuels to produce electricity. We provide public education, science policy expertise, and data-driven solutions that set the stage for a future rooted in zero-carbon energy.
Minnesota stands ready to benefit from clean, affordable sources of electricity like wind and solar, and all the improvements they bring to health, well-being, and our natural environment. Fresh Energy’s experts continue to pave the way for Minnesota to harness the power of the marketplace to expand the adoption of renewable energy and accelerate our leadership in the clean energy economy.
Highly efficient homes and commercial buildings make Minnesota a great place to live and do business. Fresh Energy is identifying new data-driven opportunities that save money – for home owners, renters, and companies – and improve the health of our communities.
Electric Cars & Buses
Transportation powered by clean electricity, instead of oil and gas, reduces pollution and can strengthen the electric grid. Fresh Energy provides education and technical assistance designed to help all Minnesotans capture the health and cost savings of electric transportation.
Energy News Network
Fresh Energy publishes an independent network of news sites covering the transition to a clean energy economy. Staffed by a multistate team of journalists, Energy News Network digests provide daily links to top news and in-depth reporting that increases public understanding of energy issues.
Fresh Energy is helping Minnesota reduce waste and use smart technology across the whole utility system, preventing the need for new power plants and generating savings. Our work with utilities shapes rate designs and helps maintain the low-cost energy we value in our state.
