City featured in Eco Experience building
Elk River staff talked with Minnesota State Fair attendees on Monday, Aug. 26, at the Eco Experience building as part of the “Clean Energy Communities” displays highlighting sustainability initiatives happening in the city. Those visiting the booth were given branded cellphone fans to keep them cool, while learning about clean energy programs in Elk River and sharing initiatives happening in their own communities. Staff members talked to a few hundred people during the day and answered questions about electric vehicles, solar power and local clean energy rebate programs offered through Elk River Municipal Utilities. Elk River is one of 11 communities selected for this project, with each city taking one day of the fair to highlight their sustainability programs.
