The Minnesota Public Utilities Commission's decision last month to allow Minnesota Power to build a new gas plant in Superior is drawing criticism from likely sources (like environmentalists) and unlikely sources (like industrial clients).

The Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy, though, says everyday folks have more control over these kinds of decisions than they might think.

The Minnesota Citizens Federation and the Citizens Utility Board, in addition to the Minnesota Center for Environmental Advocacy on Facebook  all have additional information about water and energy issues and how citizens can make their voices heard.
