Project Tundra: Carbon Capture Project A Step in the Wrong Direction

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is often promoted as a technology that brings benefits to business, local communities and the environment. IEEFA’s analysis of Project Tundra finds significant risks and uncertainties that undermine its economic viability and could lead to higher electric rates for the ratepayers of the cooperatives that buy power from Minnkota.

Learn more about the economic pitfalls of CCS, in general, and the Project Tundra proposal, specifically.
