Minnesota Power Says They Are Well Positioned To Meet EPA Goals

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - As the Environmental Protection Agency released sweeping rule changes on Monday to cut carbon emissions from power plants 30 percent by 2030, Minnesota Power says it is well positioned to meet those goals.  The company's "Energy Forward" strategy, launched early last year, transitions Minnesota Power's energy mix toward more renewables and reduces coal use to one third of their energy supply.  By contrast, in 2005 the company's energy portfolio was 95 percent coal based.  The plan also includes upgrades and installation of emission reduction equipment at its facilities.
