Minnesotans Building a Clean Energy Future

Download CERTs Fact Sheet The Clean Energy Resource Teams—or CERTs—are a statewide partnership with a shared mission to connect individuals and their communities to the resources they need to identify and implement community-based clean energy projects.

We empower communities and their members to adopt energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy technologies and practices for their homes, businesses, and local institutions.

Learn more about CERTs, meet our staff, or check out our structure. You can also see press releases and news sightings, read and submit testimonials, or find someone to contact.
