Chris Clark, president of Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota at Xcel Energy, on how utilities can work with community reductions goals

Xcel Energy, an electric and natural gas utility based out of the Midwest, has a diverse base of customers and a diverse portfolio of energy sources. 

Chris Clark, the president of Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota regions for Xcel Energy, discussed how utilities can be "good neighbors" by helping communities reach carbon reduction goals, cut costs for customers and residents and generally, "help keep the lights on," he told GreenBiz's senior analyst Elaine Hseish with a smile.
