Be as green as you want

At Connexus Energy, we make it easy for you to be green. Did you know that 25% of the electricity you use comes from renewable energy? As we build more solar arrays that number continues to climb.

How green you want to be is up to you. If you want to run your home with 100% renewable energy,
we offer several programs to help you reach your goal.

Hope for the Community Food Shelf

You won’t be hearing about “starving students” at Anoka Technical College. The college now has a food shelf onsite for students to use when needed. Connexus Energy worked with Hope for the Community to make the food shelf a reality.

Anoka Halloween Parade

Our employees love a parade especially when it takes place in Anoka, the Halloween capital of the world.
