Repowering the Midwest

The Clean Energy Development Plan for the Heartland will shift the region’s electricity portfolio from an over-reliance on polluting coal to and nuclear plants to cleaner fuels. The plan points the way toward implementation of smart policies and practices to capture readily achievable environmental, public health and economic development benefits. This sustainable development strategy makes both good environmental and economic sense for our region. Clean energy development will reduce pollution, improve reliability by diversifying our power supply and create new green manufacturing and installation jobs, as well as provide new renewable energy “cash crops” for farmers. Repowering the Midwest is a plan to seize these opportunities.
