Why would the MPUC let Xcel Energy decommission powerhouses that are currently powering the grid to build new gas fired facilities? Seems like the consumers are going to have to pay twice. After all the consumer is the ones paying for these facilities.

Retiring coal plants: YES!!! So pleased about this.

Investing in solar: YES!!! Doubly pleased.

But building a new fracked gas plant? NO NO NO.

This is not the way forward. Natural gas is not sustainable, is not much better than coal, and only slows our much-needed transition to renewable energy sources that don't harm the planet. We can power MN without this new gas plant--please modify Xcel's plan to eliminate it.

Thank you.
