RENew Initiatives

RENew Northfield has begun to launch a series of local initiatives designed to move our community as rapidly as possible toward energy self-sufficiency. We feel that these efforts will strengthen the community’s economy by keeping energy dollars circulating locally and providing solid local investment opportunities at the same time that cleaner, more environmentally benign energy production and use develops.

After several years of working with various community partners to lay the groundwork for locally owned commercial-scale wind projects (an effort that led to the Carleton College wind turbine, and other soon-to-be-announced local wind projects), we have now begun the following efforts as well:

Northfield SolarWorks

Northfield Biodiesel Buyer's Club

Northfield BuildingWorks

Stay tuned, as we expect to announce more local initiatives soon…
