Jay’s Climate Story

Posted on January 02, 2018, by Ryan Buege

"Over the years, I have witnessed the Red Wing community grow and change in ways I never would have imagined. Now outdoor ice is a rarity in Southern Minnesota. One month, maybe five weeks, is now about all you can hope for when it comes to outdoor ice. Working with the Red Wing Public Works Department, I know this first hand. In December, our crews work around the clock, if and when the temperatures are cold enough, to get the outdoor ice ready so the kids can go skating over Christmas vacation. Even if they do get ice by late December, the fear is that we will see another year with a January thaw bringing 40+ degree temperatures and melting all of the ice."

We reduced our energy consumption, and you can too

Posted on February 25, 2017, by Ryan Buege

"It has been exactly one year since our solar array began producing electricity here at our Stormwater Park and Learning Center, and it is already adding to our bottom line. Installed by All Energy Solar (with support from a Made in Minnesota grant from the Minnesota Department of Commerce), our solar photovoltaic system allows us to generate clean, renewable power on site and — just as important — monitor how much we consume. We’ve taken that information and used it to find ways to be more energy-efficient in our everyday work. It has been my personal favorite project here at the MWMO, and there’s a version you can do at home too."
