The City of St. Louis Park is making strides in energy efficiency, resulting in cost savings

Post Date:February 21, 2018 7:00 a.m.

The City of St. Louis Park recently received a report from Xcel Energy, the city’s electric utility, which details the city’s participation and results in energy program rebates. The report indicates that since the city began submitting energy program rebates in 1992, it has received almost $300,000 in rebates. Additionally, Xcel Energy estimates that the reduced energy use seen from energy efficiency improvements made from the rebates has resulted in a cost savings of approximately $250,000 annually, in addition to the rebates.

The city’s participation in the energy program rebates stems from a larger goal, to make an equitable transition toward efficient energy use and renewable power generation. This commitment is part of the St. Louis Park Energy Action Plan and Climate Action Plan, aimed to guide the city’s efforts to transition to 100% clean energy and achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions.
