Energy pathways presentation Monday, Feb. 24

On Monday, Feb. 24, the Health, Environment and Community Engagement Committee of the Minneapolis City Council will hear a presentation on the completed Energy Pathways Study.

In June of 2013, the Minneapolis City Council authorized the study to develop a vision for a future energy system and potential options for achieving that vision. The study explores the various paths the City could take to achieve its goals for an affordable, clean, reliable and local energy system.  The study includes an examination of multiple pathways to this future, including potential city-utility partnerships, changes to state law or rules, changes to how the City uses energy utility franchise fees, and the potential for municipalization of one or both energy utilities.

Full text of the study can be found on the City's website. View the HECE meeting agenda, or watch the meeting live online at 1:30 p.m., Feb. 24. The committee meeting will be in the City Council Chamber, Room 317, City Hall, 350 S. Fifth St.
