Was Minneapolis Energy Options merely a campaign to form a municipal power utility?


No. The Minneapolis Energy Options campaign seeks multiple options to make the energy we use cleaner, more affordable, and more reliable. The City has chosen to achieve that goal through improved franchise agreements and partnership agreements with Xcel Energy and Centerpoint Energy, rather than by pursuing a municipal utility. In 2013 the campaign believed it was important for the people of Minneapolis to be given a chance to vote yes on authorize but not require the City to create a municipal power utility, in hopes that a yes vote by the people will make it more likely that we will achieve these goals through either the franchise agreements or a new municipal utility.
