Here in Minnesota, we’re innovators. In Rochester, we’ve got the Mayo Clinic, an international leader in health care and research. In the Twin Cities, we’re home to innovative Fortune 500 companies like 3M and Target. And across the entire state, we’re proving to be national leaders in clean energy. Minnesota is blazing trails for wind-energy development, ranking fifth nationally for installed wind capacity while attracting millions of dollars of investment and creating high-quality jobs.
