Partners in Energy Program

Partners in Energy Program


In July 2020, the City of Roseville was accepted into Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy Program. Partners in Energy is a program that supports communities by assisting them in developing and implementing energy plans. With Roseville being a part of Partners in Energy, the City can meet its energy goals and help residents and businesses in reducing their energy bills and carbon footprints. 

The Partners in Energy program is a two-year commitment. The initial six to eight months are dedicated to developing a strategic energy action plan through the Energy Action Team, and the remainder of the two years is dedicated to implementation of the energy plan. Throughout the entire process, Roseville will be working closely with a dedicated Xcel Energy team that will provide guidance, education, and resources for City staff, businesses, and residents as they work to achieve energy goals by specific target dates.

The Energy Action Team worked with staff from Xcel Energy and the Center for Energy and Environment (CEE) to develop goals and strategies to form the heart of the City’s first Energy Action Plan. This plan was formally adopted by the City Council on June 21, 2021.
