North St. Paul/ Our Communities

The City of North St. Paul is located on the shores of Silver Lake, 13 miles northeast of St. Paul. The city is home to what many consider to be the world’s largest concrete snowman. The more than 40-foot snowman is located along highway 36 and is the city’s official symbol. North St. Paul Electric Utilities began in 1898 when a fledging electric system was purchased from private investors. The electric system was fed by a single generator located on the south shore of Silver Lake. During the early 1900’s the entire electric system flickered at 9:00 P.M. to warn children of the curfew time. In 1992, North St. Paul and seven other cities joined together to form MMPA.

Green Power Choice

Green Power Choice is a voluntary program offered to MMPA customers. The program currently offers Hydropower and Wind Power purchased from the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency.

Why Purchase Green Power?

By purchasing green power you support increased reliance on sustainable energy sources, thereby reducing the burning of fossil fuels. Unlike fossil fuels, power generated from sustainable energy sources does not produce harmful emissions. Sustainable energy sources like water and wind are replaced naturally in the environment.

How Does it Work?

Hydropower and wind power are offered in blocks of 100 kilowatt hours for $1.75 per block. You can choose to purchase any combination of wind or hydro blocks. Signing up is easy! Simply fill out the participation form included in your monthly bill.
