Electrify Your Home! Rebates! Rebates!

Did you know that switching from gas-powered appliances to electric ones can cut down on greenhouse gas emissions and save you money? Your electric supply is already one-third renewable energy, and that will likely increase in the coming years. Learn about a few appliance options below, and then dive deeper by visiting Electrify Everything Minnesota here: https://www.mncee.org/electrifyeverythingmn?undefined

Air Source Heat Pumps
Many C**n Rapids residents have already started installing heat pumps as efficient replacements for their air conditioners. But cold climate heat pumps can also help efficiently heat your home, reducing the amount of natural gas heating you have to use. Heat pumps are available for ducted and ductless homes, and new rebates and tax credits can significantly reduce the cost of installation.

Xcel Energy and Connexus Energy both offer rebates for new heat pumps. And the city will match half of your utility rebate through the Green Homes program. The Minnesota Air Source Heat Pump Collaborative keeps an updated list of additional state and federal rebates. If you’re replacing your air conditioner, consider upgrading to an air source heat pump.

Induction Ranges and Cooktops
Induction cooktops and ranges beat out the precision and heating speed of gas, and they create less indoor air pollution. They also use less energy than a radiant electric range. An induction range works by directly heating the pan through magnetism. Prices for induction ranges are coming down, and there are rebates available to help further reduce the cost of the range and any electrical work needed for installation. And for the tech wizards, some induction ranges work with Bluetooth pans, for precise single-degree adjustments!

Fire Hydrant Volunteers + Request - Anoka Co. Blotte 01/09/2024

Be a Hydrant Hero

It is the responsibility of all residents to remove snow from fire hydrants nearest to their home.
It is the responsibility of all residents to remove snow from fire hydrants nearest to their home.
Clear a path three feet around the hydrant.
This is for the safety of you and your property. Cleared hydrants reduce response time in the event of an emergency, so that first responders do not have to shovel out the hydrant before firefighting operations can begin.

If you or your neighbors are unable to clear your hydrant, you may request assistance from a group of community volunteers by filling out this form here.
Volunteers make every attempt to address each request, but can not be guaranteed. City staff also attempts to help clear hydrants when they are able.
Can you help? The community volunteers are always looking for more helpers!

Goal of new litter on ice law: keep Minnesota’s lakes and rivers clean

Every winter, hundreds of thousands of anglers head for the frozen water to fish. Most ice anglers clean up after themselves, but some don’t — and it’s their behavior that was the impetus for a new litter-on-ice law the Minnesota Legislature passed earlier this year.

Ice conditions so far this season have been highly variable and safety has to be anglers’ top priority. As anglers venture out, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reminds them that the new law requires people to secure their trash in a container such as a bucket, garbage bag or trash bin, and makes clear that depositing sewage — whether from animals or humans — on the ice is prohibited. The latter, particularly as it relates to human waste, has been an increasing problem in recent years, with some owners of deluxe fish houses (also known as wheelhouses) dumping their holding tanks on the ice before heading for shore.

The new law makes it easier for conservation officers and other law enforcement personnel to take enforcement action against people who leave trash and waste on the ice.

“Most anglers leave nothing more than an impression on the ice, and many of them actually take the time to clean up after others because they know trash and waste left on the ice is an eyesore and environmental and human health concern,” said Col. Rodmen Smith, director of the DNR Enforcement Division. “We certainly appreciate that mindset, but the reality is we expect all anglers to bring off the ice whatever they brought on. This law will help all of us ensure that happens.”

The new statute reads: “A person using a shelter, a motor vehicle, or any other conveyance on the ice of state waters may not deposit garbage, rubbish, cigarette filters, debris from fireworks, offal, the body of a dead animal, litter, sewage, or any other waste outside the shelter, motor vehicle, or conveyance, unless the material is: Placed in a container that is secured to the shelter, motor vehicle, or conveyance, and not placed directly on the ice or in state waters. For the purposes of this section, ‘sewage’ means excrementitious or other discharge from the bodies of human beings or animals, together with such other water as may be present.”

Winter Parking Restrictions in Effect

Although there is no snow yet on the ground, it's important to remember the winter parking ban is still in effect until April 1st. These restrictions keep the streets clear for plows and help protect your car from getting piled with snow from the plows or damaged.

No street parking between 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. each night.
No street parking anytime of day or night when there is an accumulation of three inches of snow or more, until the street has been plowed from curb-to-curb.
Parking can only resume after a snowplow has gone by and the street has been thoroughly cleaned from curb-to-curb.
Winter parking restrictions are in effect from Nov. 1-April 1 annually.
If a vehicle is blocking the path of a snowplow, the vehicle owner could receive a ticket or the car could be towed.

DNR, county sheriffs warn of poor ice conditions across Minnesota

Widespread rain, wind and unseasonably warm weather during recent days have degraded ice conditions throughout the state, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

While the week between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays has become popular among the owners of deluxe fish houses (known also as wheelhouses), conditions so far this winter mean few, if any, areas of the state have the ice thickness necessary for these types of ice structures. In recent days, DNR conservation officers and county sheriff’s deputies across the state have responded to instances of fish houses and recreational vehicles falling through the ice.

In central to southern portions of Minnesota, what had been marginal ice conditions are now open water. The ice farther north has deteriorated as well, with ice-angler rescues having occurred from Upper Red Lake at least three times since Dec. 17. While temperatures are forecasted to drop, ice conditions will remain poor until there’s a string of cold days to form new, clear ice.

“Many of us love to spend the New Year’s holiday with family and friends on the ice,” said Col. Rodmen Smith, director of the DNR Enforcement Division. “But when it comes to ice conditions, the calendar doesn’t matter.”

Beltrami County Sheriff Jason Riggs, whose jurisdiction includes the popular early ice fishing destination Upper Red Lake, knows that reality all too well.

“Most years, the ice would be thick enough by now for vehicles and wheelhouses, and we’d be seeing a steady procession of them heading north,” he said. “But this year isn’t ‘most years,’ and the ice is changing constantly. It’s absolutely vital that anyone who heads out checks the thickness frequently, pays close attention to the weather, and has a plan in case the worst happens and they wind up in the water.”

General ice safety guidelines

No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk:

Always wear a life jacket or float coat on the ice (except when in a vehicle).
Carry ice picks, rope, an ice chisel and tape measure.
Check ice thickness at regular intervals; conditions can change quickly.
Bring a cell phone or personal locator beacon.
Don’t go out alone; let someone know about trip plans and expected return time.
Before heading out, inquire about conditions and known hazards with local experts.
Parents and guardians should talk with their children about staying away from the ice unless there’s adult supervision. This includes lakes and rivers, as well as neighborhood ponds, retention ponds and anywhere ice forms.

What’s the scoop with heat pump water heaters? - Fresh Energy 01/03/2024

What’s the scoop with heat pump water heaters?

"Heat pump water heaters (HPWHs, also called hybrid water heaters) are a newer technology that use electricity to move heat in the ambient air to heat water in its tank, making for a super-efficient, decarbonized method of delivering hot water in buildings across the country.

How do heat pump water heaters work? How are they different than electric or gas-fired water heaters?

A heat pump water heater is a super-efficient, low-carbon way to heat water in your home or building. It has a water tank with a heat pump attached to the top that is powered by electricity to transfer heat from the surrounding air into the tank to heat the water. This is similar to how a refrigerator works, but in reverse: instead of pulling heat out of the refrigerator into the air, a heat pump water heater pulls heat out of the air to heat the tank. This means heat pump water heaters dehumidify the air and also lower the temperature of the room by a few degrees—which can be a benefit in summer months but something to consider in the winter months.

Traditional electric water heaters use electricity to generate heat in coils inside the tank, similar to how a space heater uses electricity to generate heat to warm the air. While this still has the advantage of running on electricity instead of burning gas for heat, it is less efficient than a heat pump water heater, and thus will use more electricity, too.

First Day Hikes 12/31/2023

Join people across the country for a First Day Hike at a Minnesota state park

First Day Hikes will take place at 12 Minnesota state parks tomorrow, Monday, Jan. 1, 2024, as part of a nationwide effort to connect people with the outdoors.

In an initiative spearheaded by the America’s State Parks organization, hikers in all 50 states will take guided walks on New Year’s Day. These hikes welcome people to spend time during the first day of the new year outdoors exercising and connecting with nature. For many people, it has become a tradition.

First Day Hikes will be held at Afton, Blue Mounds, Forestville Mystery Cave, Fort Snelling, Frontenac, Lake Bemidji, Mille Lacs Kathio, Minneopa, Nerstrand-Big Woods, Tettegouche, Whitewater and Wild River state parks. Find details about all 12 programs at the Minnesota Department of Natural Resource’s First Day Hikes webpage (mndnr.gov/firstdayhike).

These events are free to participate in, but some require advance registration. In addition, vehicle permits ($7 per day or $35 for a year-round permit) are required at Minnesota state parks. Visitors can save time and purchase permits in advance on the state park vehicle permits webpage (mndnr.gov/permit), or buy a permit in person during open hours at park offices.

For many of these events, if there is sufficient snow, the event will be held on snowshoes. Participants can bring their own snowshoes or borrow a set at no charge. Check the event’s online listing to learn if snowshoe reservations are available and if there is enough snow for snowshoeing at that location.

Hikers are advised to wear boots and dress in layers so clothing can be adjusted as needed. For those who are new to winter outdoor recreation, or are new to Minnesota, the DNR winter guide offers suggestions on how to dress for winter (mndnr.gov/dressforwinter).

The DNR encourages anyone unable to attend a guided hike to get out with friends and family on New Year’s Day for their own self-guided hike. Trails can be found on the DNR’s Hiking in Minnesota webpage (mndnr.gov/hiking).

Minnesota DNR enhances protection for turtles- January 1st, 2024

Two changes that enhance protection for Minnesota’s native turtles will go into effect Jan. 1.

Commercial harvest of western painted turtles and snapping turtles is no longer allowed in Minnesota beginning Jan. 1, the result of a new law enacted in 2023. People will still be allowed to raise turtles for commercial purposes under an aquaculture license with a turtle endorsement.

In addition, also beginning on Jan. 1, anglers will need both an angling license and a newly required recreational turtle license to harvest turtles using angling gear like hook and line, landing nets and gaff hooks. In the past, only an angling license was required. Traps will not be allowed for turtle harvest. Individuals under 16 do not need a recreational turtle license and may still collect turtles for turtle races.

Minnesota’s native turtles face several threats including habitat loss and fragmentation, pollution and overharvest. Due to the life history characteristics of turtles — that they are long-lived and slow growing — even low levels of increased mortality can result in declining populations, especially in northern latitudes that have short growing seasons. The enhanced protections coming into effect will help ensure the ongoing health of turtle populations in Minnesota.

Recreational turtle licenses are $25 annually and will be available Jan. 1 through the Minnesota DNR electronic license system, and more information is available on the Minnesota DNR website (mndnr.gov/fishing/commercial/turtles.html).

Dispose of Holiday Greens and Christmas Trees Correctly to Protect Minnesota’s Trees and Forests- Invasive pests can hide on festive foiage

Holiday greenery and Christmas trees bring joy throughout the season, but they can also hide dangerous pests. Diseases and invasive species can make their way into our landscapes on trees and boughs brought into Minnesota from other states.

To protect our environment, the State of Minnesota is asking residents to take these steps to properly dispose of greenery and trees after the holiday season:

The best option is to use a curbside tree collection or bring trees to a designated drop-off site. Check with your waste hauler, city, or county to see what services are offered in your area. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has a map of yard waste compost locations; contact locations directly to see if they accept trees and greenery.

Do not toss trees and greenery into your backyard woods or residential compost pile, which can spread the invasive species or disease.

Wreaths and other decorative greens can be disposed of in trash cans.

If your city or county does not have an organized pick-up or drop-off, the last resort is to burn the greens. Always check fire danger conditions and burning restrictions before burning and follow local ordinances.

Pests of concern include elongate hemlock scale, a small insect established in the eastern U.S. where many decorative Fraser firs are grown. Feeding damage caused by this invasive insect can cause the needles of hemlocks, firs, and spruces to yellow and prematurely drop. Also, boxwood blight, a fungal disease, and round leaf bittersweet, an invasive noxious w**d, are sometimes found on wreaths and centerpieces and can endanger native trees and other landscaping.

If you suspect your greenery or tree may be infested with an invasive insect or disease, contact the MDA’s Report a Pest line at 1-888-545-6684, [email protected], or through the online reporting form.
