Anoka/ Our Communities

City of Anoka

The City of Anoka is located at the convergence of the Mississippi and Rum Rivers. The community name is said to derive from a Dakota term for "on both sides of the river" and an Ojibwa term for "working waters." Major employers include Federal Cartridge Company and Hoffman Enclosures Company. Anoka citizens created the Anoka Municipal Utility (AMU) in 1909. AMU serves the city of Anoka and portions of the cities of Ramsey, Coon Rapids, Dayton, and Champlin. In 1992, AMU and seven other cities joined together to form MMPA.

Green Power Choice

Green Power Choice is a voluntary program offered to MMPA customers. The program currently offers Hydropower and Wind Power purchased from the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency.

Why Purchase Green Power?

By purchasing green power you support increased reliance on sustainable energy sources, thereby reducing the burning of fossil fuels. Unlike fossil fuels, power generated from sustainable energy sources does not produce harmful emissions. Sustainable energy sources like water and wind are replaced naturally in the environment.

How Does it Work?

Hydropower and wind power are offered in blocks of 100 kilowatt hours for $1.75 per block. You can choose to purchase any combination of wind or hydro blocks. Signing up is easy! Simply fill out the participation form included in your monthly bill.
