MN Commerce Commissioner visits Rochester for Earth Day

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Minnesota Department of Commerce Commissioner Steve Kelley toured Destination Medical Center’s One Discovery Square project Monday.

The visit was part of Rochester’s 5th annual Earth Fest. The week-long event is a volunteer led effort and consists of several Earth Day programs across the city.

Commissioner Kelly says One Discovery Square is an example of an energy efficient entrepreneurial project. He continued, “I think energy efficiency, conservation, those are values that are both conservative and liberal that everyone can agree on.”

One of Governor Walz’s policy goals is to have utilities in the state produce electricity from 100 percent clean sources by 2050.

Construction on One Discovery Square is set to be complete in June.
