Monday, July 22nd, 2019

The Rochester Public Utilities (RPU) Utility Board will discuss and select a scenario for Rochester’s energy needs beyond 2030 at its July 23rd meeting.

Burns & McDonnell Engineering Company Inc. will present scenarios to the RPU Board showing different energy mix scenarios for RPU after 2030, when RPU’s contract with Southern Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (SMMPA) concludes. Scenarios will include an array of different energy mixes including a 100% renewable energy option.

Minnesota cities that currently have chosen a 100% renewable energy direction include St. Paul, Minneapolis, and St. Louis Park.

All RPU Utility Board Meetings are open to the public. The July 23rd meeting will be held in the RPU Community Room at the RPU Service Center and will begin promptly at 4pm.
