Wayzata’s Energy Action Plan Moving Toward Final Approval

Wayzata’s Energy and Environment Committee will update the city council on a draft of the city’s Energy Action Plan (EAP) at a workshop meeting Tuesday.

The city has been accepted into the Partners in Energy Program with Xcel Energy.

So far, the focus of the group was to create an EAP with the overall goal of energy efficiency and conservation.

An Energy Action Team was formed and created the following vision statement:

"Wayzata is a forward-thinking community on the forefront of sustainability. We will lead by example to reduce our energy use through conservation and increase access to renewable energy sources for all residents, businesses, and institutions. Our community and its members will thrive and become more resilient through promoting values of energy stewardship and supporting everyone in our community in our work".

City staff and Xcel Energy will be present at the workshop to provide any additional information or answer any questions of Council.

This portion of Tuesday’s city council workshop meeting is scheduled to start at 6 p.m.
