Legislation Signed by the Governor

House File 113 /Senate File 85, has been signed by Governor Dayton.
This legislation allows Xcel Energy to build a natural gas plant where the coal plants that they are shutting down are located.  This is important for the local community and ensures the reliability/stability of the electric grid.
The project will be done cost-effectively with all aspects of the building project being "sent out for bid" to ensure competitive prices for the work/materials to be acquired.  The PUC will review all final costs of the project.
