Would a yes on the ballot initiative have raised energy rates?


No. The referendum to authorize formation of a Municipal Utility which Minneapolis Energy Options was campaigning for last year would have required the City to prove that it will not raise rates. If the City can’t prove that, the authorization will not have taken effect. And remember, rates have been going up under the current utilities. Xcel has raised rates at least four times since 2006.
