Metro cities team up to ‘Electrify Everything MN’

1 min read

Significant progress continues to be made in cutting carbon emissions from energy production in Minnesota and and area metro cities stated that there has never been a better time to begin exploring the transition from gas-powered appliances to electric-powered options.

That’s where The Electrify Everything MN campaign comes in. The project includes a series of workshops where residents can ask questions, explore high-efficiency electric heating/cooling systems and appliances, and learn how to access grants, tax credits and rebates to help pay for home energy projects.

The first round of free workshops are scheduled in May and residents of Eden Prairie, Edina and St. Louis Park can register to attend any of the workshops at ElectrifyEverythingMN.org.

  • May 3, 6–8 p.m. — Edina Public Works Building, 7450 Metro Boulevard
  • May 9, 6–8 p.m. — St. Louis Park Public Library, 3240 Library Lane
  • May 15, 6–8 p.m. — Eden Prairie Community Center, 16700 Valley View Road

There will be a second round of workshops this fall and the Electrify Everything MN campaign will also have a presence at local events in each community this spring and summer to share information, answer questions and help residents who want to take action.

For more information and resources, and to register for a workshop, visit ElectrifyEverythingMN.org.
