Winona’s Energy Action Plan

Winona’s Energy Action Plan

In November 2017, the Winona City Council adopted Winona’s Energy Action Plan. In adopting this plan, the City of Winona hopes to spur interest and motivation among community and business leaders in reducing energy use and saving on energy costs with the help of rebates. There has been significant effort over the last two years to build momentum around energy and sustainability in Winona. The goals and strategies outlined in this plan will accelerate that momentum and generate some important and tangible results.

Winona’s Energy Action Plan includes the bold goal of carbon neutrality by 2050. In addition to this goal, Winona also outlined a set of goals and strategies in four focus areas: Residential Energy, Institutions, Large Commercial/Industrial Energy Users, and Small- and Medium-size Businesses.

Get involved today to help Winona reach the goals laid out in its Energy Action Plan.
