The city of Minneapolis and Xcel Energy have been working together for more than a century. Minneapolis is our headquarters - we work here, we live here, we give here. Together, we've got a great track record and we're working with the city of Minneapolis to help it achieve its energy goals.
We understand Minneapolis residents and businesses want reliable, affordable and clean energy - Xcel Energy and our 2,500 Minneapolis employees deliver just that. Because energy is our business, we've become a national leader in reducing carbon emissions while keeping our electricity rates below the national average and our service reliability above it. We're here every minute of the day and when severe storms hit, we mobilize all resources to restore power to residents and businesses as quickly and safely as possible.
The city of Minneapolis, Xcel Energy, and CenterPoint Energy created a first-of-its-kind Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) in October 2014. The CEP is a commitment between the organizations to collaborate on innovative approaches to help Minneapolis achieve its clean energy goals.
Leadership and decision-making for the CEP are provided by the Partnership's board, which includes two representatives from Xcel Energy, along with the mayor of Minneapolis, two City Council Members, the Minneapolis city coordinator and two representatives from CenterPoint Energy. In addition to the Partnership Board, a group of 15 Minneapolis citizens called the Energy Vision Advisory Committee (EVAC) to provide feedback on the partnership's efforts in the city. The Planning Team operates to organize and execute the decisions of the CEP board. Staffs from the city, Xcel Energy and CenterPoint Energy are members of the Planning Team, which manages all aspects of the CEP.
The CEP operates under a board approved work plan, targeted at city priorities and reports progress annually on each initiative.
