Protect Minnesota ratepayers from expensive new nuclear energy costs
Minnesota has been a national leader in growing a clean energy economy. Manufacturing and installing wind turbines, solar panels and other renewable technologies have provided economic benefits throughout Minnesota.
Repealing the state’s long-standing moratorium on new nuclear reactors would distract us from continuing to grow that clean energy economy.
New nuclear reactors would also mean rate hikes for Minnesotans at a time when many can’t afford higher electricity bills. In other states where new nuclear reactors are planned, ratepayers have seen their monthly electrical bills increase when utilities pass along the costs of research, construction, and waste storage – even before those ratepayers actually start to receive the electricity from new reactors.
Please protect ratepayers and keep Minnesota on the path to a clean energy economy. Maintain the nuclear moratorium and vote NO on S.F. 355 in the Senate Energy Committee.
