The idiot State is driving them to it. There are actually democrats striving to make it a goal to be 100% renewable.

Insanity.

“In many ways, Minnesota has been the birthplace of the renewable energy movement,” Governor Pawlenty said. “Today, we are leading the nation on the path to a better, cleaner, more independent energy future. I want to thank all of the legislators and stakeholders who worked together to achieve this milestone in a positive, productive way.”

The bill signed by the Governor requires energy companies to provide 25 percent of power from renewable sources by 2025. Xcel Energy, which supplies approximately half of the electricity in the state, is required to provide 30 percent from renewable sources by 2020.
An additional 5,000 megawatts of energy from renewable sources would be added to Minnesota’s electricity resources, roughly eight times more than currently comes from renewables. Future renewable energy would include electricity produced by wind turbines, biomass, hydrogen and solar power.
Senator Ellen Anderson (DFL-St. Paul) and Representative Aaron Peterson (DFL-Appleton) were chief authors of the legislation.
