What is the best minor for an Electrical Engineering major?

I am an incoming freshman majoring in Electrical Engineering, I'm hoping to earn a power certificate / have an area of concentration in power engineering. I have a lot of transfer credit from AP scores. While it would be awesome to skip by with 12 credit hours a term, I'm considering a minor or even a double major. The questions are what should I double major / minor in and is it even worth it to have a different subject on my degree. Unfortunately I don't have an engineer in my life to ask that question. Is it more valuable to not have a power certificate and instead just major in EE and something else? Or should I not worry about a minor and focus on the standard EE courseload. I'm considering - Minoring in chemical engineering Minoring in mechanical engineering Double Majoring in EE and ME Minoring in computer science Minoring in optical engineering Minoring in economics Double Majoring in EE and economics Just majoring in EE with area of concentration in power / power certificate Could any engineers, college advisers, professional, or anybody who has some know how answer which path will be the most beneficial to me? Or even suggest a different one? Feel free to provide input even if others have already answered.
