Minnesota’s largest utility proposing state legislation promoting renewable LNG and hydrogen

February 10, 2020 |

In Minnesota, CenterPoint Energy, the state’s largest natural gas utility serving more than 860,000 residential and business customers, is proposing state legislation promoting innovative clean energy resources and technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and advance Minnesota’s clean energy future.

The Natural Gas Innovation Act would establish a state regulatory policy allowing a natural gas utility to add alternative fuels, such as renewable natural gas and hydrogen gas, to its distribution system. A utility could also deploy new energy-efficiency and carbon-capture technologies to reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions from natural gas use.

The bipartisan legislation will be introduced when the 2020 Minnesota Legislature convenes on Feb. 11, with Rep. Zack Stephenson (DFL-District 36A) and Sen. Bill Weber (R-District 22) as authors.
