Need for Reliable Electricity

  • Projected Population Growth: 1.3 million by 2050

    • www.demography.state.mn.us

  • Projected Job Growth: 500,000 new jobs by 2012

    • www.deed.state.mn.us

  • Projected Electric Demand Growth: 4,500-6,300 MW by 2020

  • CapX 2020 projects will ensure the region has reliable electricity to power homes, businesses and farms for decades to come

  • Transmission will enable more wind and renewable energy to come on-line
