Planning Workshop Image

The City of Inver Grove Heights invites you to serve as a Business Representative on the Energy Action Team

The City of Inver Grove Heights kicked off a new planning process this summer: Partners in Energy, a two-year commitment between Xcel Energy and Inver Grove Heights to help communities like ours develop and implement a strategic energy plan. As an IGH business, take advantage of this opportunity to help shape Inver Grove Heights energy future. 

Time Commitment 

There will be 5 workshops over a 6-month period to help our community identify goals and strategies. Our first workshop is complete, but we are seeking additional business representation for future workshops. In total, energy action team members can expect to spend 10 -15 hours on this initiative over the next 5 months. With current social distancing guidelines, we will be holding workshops over video conferencing platforms this summer and fall. 

Why sign up 

As a member of the Energy Action Team, you’ll have the opportunity to: 

  • Contribute to the goals and priorities of Inver Grove Heights’ Energy Action Plan, especially those that will impact the business community 
  • Learn about energy efficiency, renewable energy, and electric vehicles 
  • Build relationships with the City, utility representatives, and other residents and businesses of Inver Grove Heights

Energy Action Team Outcomes

This group will create an IGH Energy Action Plan that helps community members lower their energy usage and costs. Together, we will brainstorm goals and strategies to connect community members to energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities. Your valuable input is greatly appreciated during this citywide strategic planning process.
