Careers On Wheels Day

Posted: Tue, May 28, 2013
Each Spring New Hampton Elementary School celebrates Career Awareness.  This year they hosted a Careers on Wheels Day for all elementary students.  The purpose of this day is to expose students to a variety of careers that involve a vehicle of some kind and to show students the workplace opportunities of our community.

Any business/industry in New Hampton that uses wheels (a vehicle) was invited to attend this event which was held last Friday, May 24th.  Businesses brought their vehicle to the Elementary School playground and had an employee there to talk with the kids about their job, how they use the vehicle at their place of work, and how important STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) is in the workplace.

Below are a few pictures from the fun-filled afternoon.

Black Hills Energy Efficiency Programs

Posted: Fri, February 8, 2013
Below is a general link to Black Hills Energy's energy efficiency programs both residential and commercial.  

http://www.blackhillsenergy.com/services/programs/ee-ia.php

The Black Hills Energy commercial and industrial custom rebate program can aid in reducing energy costs as well as helping reduce the payback period of your new equipment and making it upfront more affordable.

Many of the rebates listed require a comprehensive energy evaluation be completed prior to receiving assistance.  This involves a review of energy consumption of the building to identify the characteristics, condition and performance of the facility's energy systems.  There is a minimal cost of $50.  To be eligible for the energy audit the facilities must be less than 25,000 square feet.   For a business to request an energy evaluation they can call us toll-free at 888-567-0799 or complete and submit the form on the internet.  

The primary energy efficiency programs for commercial are the Prescriptive, Custom, and  Non-residential new construction.  Each has a link under the general commercial program heading.  

The Prescriptive rebates are generally for the purchase of high-efficiency space and water heating and commercial cooking equipment where the energy savings are easy to calculate from the old equipment being replace.

Custom rebates are available to Black Hills Energy commercial and industrial customers for projects that reduce natural gas usage and are not covered under the Iowa Prescriptive Rebate Program.

The Black Hills Energy Commercial New Construction program covers new construction and major renovations, primarily in the commercial sector, some multi-family and light industrial projects may also qualify. The intent is to reduce natural gas usage in buildings by ensuring they are designed and built with energy efficiency in mind.   This program requires the business to work with our folks in the design stages.  Financial incentives are available to help offset the initial costs associated with the design and installation of energy-efficient options that are incorporated into the building.

If you have any questions regarding the energy efficiency programs, contact Black Hills Energy at 888-567-0799.

Best States for Business

Posted: Fri, December 28, 2012
Iowa is ranked in the top 10 for Best States for Business!  Ranked at #10 in 2011, Iowa holds its #10 spot for best states for business.

Iowa has transformed its agricultural economy over the past 50 years to a diversified one that includes manufacturing, food processing, financial services and biotechnology. Des Moines is a major financial services hub with big employers like Principal Financial and Wells Fargo. Iowa managed the recession better than most with a recent unemployment rate of just 5.1%. Iowa scores strongly on regulatory environment and business costs, which are 14% below the national average.

TRIBE Trail Lands $100,000 Grant

Posted: Thu, May 9, 2019

The TRIBE Trail's second phase is definitely a go after committee members learned last week that the Wellmark Foundation has awarded the trail a $100,000 grant.

That means the TRIBE Trail Committee has enough money to go ahead with the bidding process for Phase II of the trail that will run from Logan Street to Linn Avenue and cost about $625,000 to build.

Committee member Megan Baltes said the committee had used the Wellmark grant in its preliminary calculations on how much money it had raised so "this is really big for us to have it secured and we're very appreciative of the Wellmark Foundation's belief in our project."

Along with grants from the Iowa Department of Transportation, the Black Hawk Gaming Association, the Chickasaw County Community Foundation and Wellmark, the committee has also received about $249,000 in private donations to help fund Phase II of the trail that will eventually connect trails in Mikkelson Park and the city's west-side Industrial Park.

Because the Iowa Department of Transportation's grant comes from its Transportation Alternative Program (TAP) that is funded by federal dollars, the committee must bid out Phase II of the project.

Baltes and fellow TRIBE Trail Committee member Rick Kramer expect to bid the project in June and work will begin sometime this August and be completed by the fall.

Phase I of the TRIBE Trail runs from Mikkelson Park through the Boy Scout Playground, down Fourth Avenue and through Garnant Park and was built in the fall of 2017.
