Electric Vehicle Adoption


Recharge Minnesota Needs Leaders Like You

Community leaders in Greater Mankato are collaborating to establish our region as a leader for livability, innovation and opportunity. Central to our work is embracing a remarkable transition that is occurring with clean energy. We are working jointly to establish our region as a centerpiece of efforts nationally and globally to usher in a new generation of mobility and recreational options centered on the promise of advanced electric technology of all types.

As a community leader, you’re invited to join us in this initiative by participating in Recharge Minnesota activities locally and initiatives aimed at spotlighting community leaders in the drive for new transportation and recreational options. We believe this work can help achieve many of our community goals in the years ahead.



We are working to capture the economic benefits of electric vehicles, which in our region we anticipate are at least $1,000 annually per vehicle, once they are in our community.


We recognize that many aspects of our community, from our local philanthropic leaders to educational institutions to leaders of all stripes, will play a central role in achieving this outcome for our region.


Near-term commitments by a host of entities will be required to facilitate the transition.

Together we can make a difference in communities across Minnesota.
