Next MEPC Meeting:
Thursday, October 1, 2015
Please click here for meeting materials.

The Metropolitan Energy Policy Coalition (MEPC), comprised of commissioners from Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne and Washington counties, members of the Metropolitan Council and the Metropolitan Airports Commission, engages in matters of strategic interest to meet the needs of Minnesota Counties to secure safe, reliable, economical, and environmentally responsible energy sources.  

The MEPC works to develop renewable energy sources, improve the efficiency with which energy resources are utilized, and contribute to Minnesota becoming energy independent.

The MEPC was originally organized in 1999 in response to deregulation that was sweeping the energy sector. The group initially focused on issues pertaining to the availability, reliability and affordability of electricity and natural gas supplies in Minnesota, but as the pace of restructuring slowed, the MEPC transitioned into a collaborative, educational forum for County Commissioners and Met Council Members to collectively discuss, understand and plan for current and future energy supply, policy and regulatory issues.

MEPC members encourage you to look around the website to read about the Coalition’s past accomplishments, current projects, and plans for the future.
