    STATES CAN’T BAR IMPORTED ENERGY – COURT

    Judge Strikes Down Minnesota Clean Energy Law As Unconstitutional

    Michael Puttre, April 21, 2014 (Solar Industry)

    “In what cleantech advocates regard as a stinging reversal, a federal judge has struck down Minnesota's 2007 Next Generation Energy Act (NGEA) restricting electricity generated by out-of-state power plants as unconstitutional because it violates the Commerce Clause. Minnesota officials have vowed to appeal the decision…The NGEA bars Minnesota utilities from importing electricity from fossil-fuel power plants in another state that were not operating as of the beginning of 2007 unless the facilities offset any carbon dioxide (CO2) they emit. The purpose of the legislation was to encourage renewable power generation, increase energy conservation and decrease Minnesota’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions…Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton came out swinging [in disagreement] after the ruling…[New Energy advocates say] the decision puts increased pressure and responsibility at the federal level to regulate CO2 emissions.” click here for more
