Learn About 100% Renewable Rochester


100% Renewable Rochester is a grassroots coalition committed to transitioning Rochester, MN to a 100% renewable energy economy. Our objective is to educate and engage the community on the issues, challenges, and opportunities involved in making this transition a reality. We believe establishing an aggressive goal backed by a groundswell of community support is the best way to ensure our success.

This effort is entirely self-funded so we aren’t asking for contributions. Instead we are asking for something much more important: your voice. We need people to stand up and demonstrate to local policy makers that we, as a community, support this effort. So please join us in our journey to create a better city for future generations.
