Public Stakeholder Meetings


Legislation passed in 2013 requires the Department of Commerce to establish a solar value methodology, to develop the scope for a Minnesota Energy Future Study on how the state can transition to a sustainable energy system, and to conduct public meetings that result in a report with recommendations on the statewide energy savings goal. A number of public stakeholder meetings have been established to meet those goals.

Note: Please register for each event separately. All events listed are free and open to the public, however, pre-registration is requested. Additional information, including meetings changes or additions will be provided to those that are pre-registered.
