Generation Disclosure
Summary: 
In September 2002, the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission (PUC) issued an order requiring the state's regulated electric utilities to disclose to customers details on the fuel mix and emissions of electric generation. Utilities must provide this information to customers in a standard format twice annually. Utilities may distribute this information to customers electronically. Disclosure information must also be filed with the PUC.

Ordering Points:

1. The annual paper mailing regarding environmental disclosure/cost generation information shall be released no later than September the 1st. 

2.  Utilities shall update their website/brochure information annually regarding environmental disclosure/cost generation information and file copies of the modifications with the Commission as of June 1st of each year.

3.  At least twice a year, all utilities shall provide (in an on-bill message or newsletter) information directing customers to the specific location on a utility’s website for environmental and generation cost information.

In addition, in 2009, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency began to transition to an inventory data management system that consolidates criteria, toxic and greenhouse gas inventories. The Air Emissions Inventory can be found here.
