While the electricity that Connexus Energy delivers to your home includes approximately four percent renewable energy, the Wellspring® Renewable Wind Energy Program offers energy-conscious members an option to do more for the environment.
Participation not only supports wind energy development in Minnesota, but also helps reduce our dependency on non-renewable energy sources like coal and other fossil fuels.
As the demand for electricity continues to increase, our power supplier, Great River Energy (GRE) is on track to meet the green energy objective passed into law that requires utilities to generate 25 percent of their power from renewable sources such as wind, water, and sun by 2025. The law encourages the use of wind farms, hydroelectric power, and solar energy, as well as cleaner burning fuels.
Today, GRE’s renewable sources generate enough electricity to serve the annual needs of 64,000 homes.
Our commitment to environmental leadership is part of our strategic initiatives. We are convinced that pursuing renewable energy alternatives and giving customers the choice to support those initiatives is the right thing to do.
