Partners in Energy

Burnsville is developing an Energy Action Plan and we’re looking for your ideas and perspectives. In 2023, we’ve joined Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy program to create an attainable, strategic energy action plan that is uniquely Burnsville. Our Sustainability Plan lays out our citywide goals to ensure vitality for generations to come. Our Energy Action Team is creating a roadmap on how we’ll reach these goals in this Energy Action Plan.

The Process

In Summer and Fall 2023, we have engaged with Burnsville residents and business owners, staff, City Council, and utility providers through meetings, public events, and hosting a survey and a multi-lingual open house. We're writing up a final plan to share with City Council in Spring 2024.
