North St. Paul

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.

  • Renewable Products

    Clean Energy Choice

    Clean Energy Choice is an affordable, low-cost way for residential electric customers to support renewable energy. The program offers residential customers with the option to elect to have 50%, 75%, or 100% of their electricity from renewable sources. This is in addition to the 17% renewable energy that is provided to all MMPA customers, as required by Minnesota law. The renewable energy for the Clean Energy Choice program comes from the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency’s renewable resources and renewable purchases from other utilities.  For more information on MMPA’s renewable energy resources, click here.
