Environmentalists Encourage Changes at SHERCO
September 12, 2013
The advocacy group Environment Minnesota recently called Xcel Energy's SHERCO power plant in Sherburn County the single largest producer of carbon pollution in the state of Minnesota.
Environmentalists would like Xcel to stop burning coal at Xcel, and the organization Fresh Energy is campaigning to get people to send that message to the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission.
The organization is sponsoring an information session at the St. Paul Campus of the University of Minnesota on Monday, September 16th, to encourage people to weigh in on the future of SHECO. Explorer Will Steger will be there, along with J. Drake Hamilton, Fresh Energy's Science Policy Director.
She appeared on KFAI's Morning Blend and talked with Paul Brohaugh.
