New "Electrifying MINNESOTA" Exhibit
See how everyday life has been shaped by electrification through artifacts, photos, first-hand accounts, early advertisements and film from the 1880s through the 1950s.
The exhibit recounts the history of electricity since one of the nation's first hydroelectric power plants whirred into action 125 years ago at St. Anthony Falls.
It demonstrates electromagnetic induction, how the process utilizes natural resources to generate electricity and how the use of those resources impacts the environment.
You'll learn how you can take responsibility for our electrical future by joining The Bakken team and taking the Minnesota Energy Challenge.
