Positively Electric: Embracing clean electricity to power more of our economy

With Minnesota’s electricity mix becoming cleaner and less expensive – and oil and gas becoming dirtier, riskier and more costly – is it time to transition to a more electric economy? Fresh Energy thinks the answer is a resounding yes. We think it’s time to start putting electricity from the wind, the sun, and other local clean power sources into more of Minnesota’s economy. Hear from Stanford University’s Joseph Stagner about the university’s dramatic and award winning shift from fossil fuels to renewable electricity for Stanford’s entire Palo Alto campus, and Great River Energy’s Will Kaul on how they are already demonstrating the value of wind-powered electric cars and water heaters. Together, we will imagine a future where our buildings, transportation, and the vast majority of our economy is run entirely off of clean energy and discuss how to start getting there. You’ll be electrified by this forward-thinking conversation about what is possible!
