In January 2020, the Menomonie City Council adopted a resolution committing to prevent continued damage to our climate and to invest in solutions that help to mitigate the changes that have already occurred for current and future generations. In this resolution, Menomonie set an energy vision to ensure all electricity consumed is 100% carbon-free by 2050.
The City of Menomonie identified Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy as an opportunity to engage the Menomonie-area community around our 2050 goal and to increase energy efficiency and renewable energy support across all sectors.
Our Energy Action Plan, crafted by the Menomonie community, serves several purposes. It creates intention, helps us lead by example, manages our resources, and outlines our opportunities to collaborate to achieve our carbon-free electricity.
