Which state would you rather live in? Green mile or the red one?

A lot of people are talking about a new initiative in Minnesota that would make green-miile land a public asset.

The idea is to put the land in the public domain and put it back to use.

But some have concerns about how that would work, and it’s an open question whether the state can actually do that.

It’s unclear whether the new initiative will make any real progress in a state where the population is so large. 

In January, Minnesota became the first state to declare green-mile land in Minnesota public property.

The new law has sparked debate about what to do with the land.

What will be the fate of the land after the new law goes into effect?

How would it be used?

What if I get a green-meter bill?

If you live in Minnesota and have an electric bill from the last two years, you can use that to calculate how much energy you’ll get by 2020.

If you have a bill from 2014, you need to pay a fee to the Minnesota Utilities Commission.

The commission will then calculate how long the bill is expected to last and then set up an energy meter on your bill. 

Green-meter bills can be paid online or by mail. 

How does the new legislation affect other states?

If Minnesota passes the legislation, it would likely create a green energy incentive program in other states that would offer credits and rebates for solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower projects.

The incentive program would apply to projects that use less than 50 percent of the state’s energy.

The incentives would be tied to the number of megawatts of renewable energy the project will produce. 

What’s the deal with green-feet?

Green-feet, or “green-meter” meters, are a form of utility bill credit that are issued by Minnesota utility companies.

They’re intended to provide energy savings.

The first state with such a program was North Dakota, which created a green meter program in 2011.

Since then, more than 40 states have adopted green meters, and more than 90 percent of Americans own green meters.

The Green Miles Program was created in Minnesota in 1999 and is a partnership between the Minnesota Department of Commerce and the Minnesota Green Miles Partnership, a non-profit that has worked to help green-meters become more widely available. 

Is this the first bill like this in Minnesota?


In November 2015, the Minnesota Legislature passed legislation that made green-foot meters a new asset. 

The law passed the state House and Senate in April and is expected in the final version of the bill.

If it makes it to the governor’s desk, it could take effect as early as January 2018.

The Minnesota bill is modeled after the program in North Dakota and was inspired by the energy-saving efforts of Minnesota’s energy industry, which uses green-fiber-optic solar panels.

In North Dakota , the industry uses solar panels that capture solar energy and convert it to electricity. 

Why is it called a green mile?

The Green Mile was created as a way to provide a tax incentive for renewable energy projects that can reduce their costs and energy consumption.

In Minnesota, that means that green-energy projects that have a renewable energy output can get a tax credit. 

Does it apply to the whole state?

Yes, the state would be required to establish a green resource incentive program for green-powered projects. 

Will it help me save money?


This program would be the first one in the state that offers credits for renewable projects.

It would also be the second time Minnesota has done so. 

Do I have to pay the fees?

Yes and no.

The green- meter program is voluntary, so no one has to pay fees.

It is still possible for people to get a rebate, but it is not required. 

If I live in a place with a solar array, will it count toward my green meter?

Yes it will.

It will take into account the amount of solar power produced.

It doesn’t matter if you’re using solar panels for a home or for an office.

If a solar project has an output of 25 megawatts or more, the amount it produces will be credited. 

Where can I get information about green energy credits?

In the state of Minnesota, there are a lot of green energy projects.

These include solar arrays, hydropowered plants, wind turbines, and solar thermal power.

There are also solar-powered vehicles that generate electricity when the sun isn’t shining and wind turbines that generate wind power when the wind is blowing.

What happens if I lose my green-microwave bill?

The new law won’t affect your credit history.

If your green- meters expire, you’ll still be able
