April is Earth Month! The sun is sticking around longer and longer as we get closer to summer. It’s a great time to think about installing solar at your home or business. A solar installation can last for more than 20 years and typically pays for itself within 10 years. More than 80 buildings in Coon Rapids have already installed solar.
If you can’t install solar at your home, consider subscribing to your utility company’s renewable energy program to offset your electricity use with clean power. For a small surcharge on your monthly bill, you can know that your home is using wind or solar power generated off-site.
Using renewable energy can help the City reach its goal of reducing citywide greenhouse gas emissions 35% by 2030.
