Over the past dozen years, Minnesota Power has increased renewable generation nearly six-fold.   We now generate nearly 30% of our power from renewable sources like the wind, water and sun, with additional potential renewable projects on the horizon. Our coal plants are among the cleanest in the nation, and our control systems have greatly reduced emissions of mercury, sulfur dioxide, and particulates.  Minnesota Power’s director of environmental and land management will discuss the company’s ongoing journey to deliver safe, reliable, affordable clean energy.
