Xcel Energy Cuts Carbon Emissions by 35 Percent
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/25/2018

The Minneapolis-based Xcel Energy is a step closer to achieving one of the most aggressive carbon-reduction goals in the industry. The utility announced it has cut carbon emissions by 35 percent, according to its newly released Corporate Responsibility Report. This puts Xcel on track to reach or exceed its ambitious goal of reducing carbon emissions 60 percent by 2030 from 2005 levels.

"We're on a path to provide a more sustainable, prosperous energy future and believe reducing carbon emissions while enhancing affordability is a tremendous benefit for the customers and communities we serve," said Excel Energy CEO Ben Fowke.

The company has already surpassed the U.S. commitment under the Paris Climate Accord in 2016, which called for a 26 to 28 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2025. It further plans to continue reducing its environmental footprint with an energy mix that is projected to be 60 percent carbon free in 2022.

Xcel provides energy for millions of homes and businesses in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Michigan and Texas.
