Additional Information

Green Drinks ( is an international organization with a simple goal: to bring together sustainable-minded people and professionals in a casual setting. Rochester Green Drinks takes place on last Thursday of each month from 5:00-ish to whenever. Join us! Forager Brewing Company, 1005 6th Street Northwest, Rochester, MN. We’ll be just inside the front door.

This month, we’ll hear a short presentation about Red Wing and then network with other cool people:

Since 2011, with 12 buildings in B3, Red Wing has seen a 55% decrease in their carbon footprint! Specifically, Red Wing has LED street lights going up; has done updates to city hall, auditorium, and the library, and public works buildings; is getting new windows in city hall and the auditorium and replacing boilers and heating systems soon. In addition, through Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy (PiE) program goals, 10% of homes (about 700) and 10% of businesses (100) will have the opportunity to do energy conservation and/or solar.

The City of Red Wing, a town of 17,000 people, has been very busy in the last couple years saving energy with efficiency measures and adding solar PV to city facilities. They’re also a Step 2 member of the Minnesota GreenStep Cities program, a voluntary challenge, assistance and recognition program to help cities achieve their sustainability and quality-of-life goals. Learn more from Jay McCleary with the City of Red Wing who shepherded these projects along.

The next Green Drinks is on April 22 in conjunction with the EarthFest Pub Crawl, 1:00 – 5:00.
