April is Earth Month! This week, the City is launching its new Energy Action Plan. The Energy Action Plan outlines how Coon Rapids will improve energy efficiency and promote renewable energy citywide over the next few years. Residents, businesses and institutions all have a part to play in helping the City reach its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 35% by 2030.
You can help by increasing the energy efficiency of your home or building, and by exploring renewable energy options. Efficiency can be as easy as installing LED lightbulbs and turning off your electronics when they’re not in use. And installing solar or subscribing to renewable energy through your electric utility provider can help make sure the electricity you do use is sustainable.
The City is leading the way. Coon Rapids continues to prioritize the efficiency of our own buildings to reduce utility bills and responsibly steward our resources.
