Natural Gas Innovation Act
Minnesota has long been a state that embraces innovation in energy policy and environmental protection. With a current goal of 25% renewable energy, close to half of the state’s electricity already comes from renewable sources such as wind, solar and hydroelectricity.
Building on this tradition, the Natural Gas Innovation Act, introduced by CenterPoint Energy, establishes a regulatory framework that will enable Minnesota’s investor-owned natural gas utilities to provide customers with access to renewable energy resources and innovative technologies – reducing the state’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and advancing the state’s cleaner energy future. Additional benefits include diversifying the state’s energy sources, promoting technological innovation, improving waste management and supporting rural economic development. This landmark law defines key terms and clarifies the legislative intent that natural gas utilities can assist the state in meeting its existing renewable energy and GHG reduction goals.
