Local Democracy Legislation Regarding Distributed Generation
During the 2017 Legislative Session, the Minnesota Legislature passed, and the Governor signed, a provision that reduces duplication in regulation on your electric cooperative. The legislation allows the board of directors of an electric cooperative to adopt the authority of the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) over a specific section of Minnesota Statute regarding distributed generation. The MLEC board of directors will be discussing and voting on adopting a resolution at their September 15, 2017, board meeting. Written comments will be taken and comments will be heard prior to that meeting. Click here for more details.
