The City of Eden Prairie has been striving to be an energy efficient community for several years. An early example of this is the 20-40-15 program. It began in 2006 as an initiative to improve energy efficiency in city facilities and city vehicles. The initiative is still on track and is going very well.
Eden Prairie decided to build on this success by becoming a GreenStep city. The city conservation commission studied, investigated and recommended the GreenStep Cities initiative. Following their recommendation the city council subsequently decided to join the program.
