"A new report from the American Society of Civil Engineers, or ASCE, quantifies how the United States’ chronic underinvestment in infrastructure...has created an investment gap that affects the economy, safety, jobs, communities, and health. As infrastructure continues to age without proper investment and upkeep, the costs to maintain and repair it continue to rise over time. The country’s dam infrastructure is not exempt from this underinvestment...the country’s nearly two million dams are one of the most pressing infrastructure challenges for safety, the environment, and the economy. While most of these dams were originally built for economic purposes...many of their original purposes and benefits have diminished. This report aims to outline the next phase in federal dam policy and update the values and goals surrounding dam infrastructure and healthy rivers.

Our neighbors and farmers across the region are installing solar to offset their energy costs. Some are calling it the new cash crop. As the price of solar installations have decreased, opportunities for rural America have grown.
Join CURE and our friends in the Minnesota Farmers’ Union for two Solar Field Days in November to answer questions you might still have about joining the ranks of clean energy producers.
At these Field Days you’ll get the opportunity to hear firsthand from farmers with solar installations about their experience in joining the clean energy economy. You’ll get expert information on federal financial incentives for clean energy projects from the Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs), as well as how installing clean energy can build the rural economy.
There is no cost to attend either event. Because space is limited, we are asking that you RSVP with us prior to the event. RVSP’s can either be made online or by calling the CURE Office (320)-269-2984 or 877-269-2873.
