Northwest CERT is focused on energy conservation and renewable energy generation that provides opportunities within Northwestern Minnesota
Northeast CERT members believe that clean energy will use local resources, invigorate local economies, and improve the environment
Central CERT's mission is to build a sustainable future by increasing awareness and adoption of energy efficiency and clean energy resources
West Central CERT wants to fundamentally change the way energy is produced and consumed in its region's communities and across the state
Metro CERT helps connect, provide support for, and increase the effectiveness of these local efforts in conducting community energy projects.
The Southwest Region’s overall goal is to export more renewable energy than energy it imports and consumes, in large part through conservation
Southeast CERT is guided by the vision of communities producing a greater share of the region's energy through locally-owned clean energy projects
What are the Regional CERTs?
Clean Energy Resource Teams are located in our seven Minnesota regions. Each region has a team, a coordinator, and a steering committee. The regional teams are diverse—business owners, farmers, members of environmental groups, local utility representatives, local government staff and elected leaders, academics—and all share common goals and values.
Why Get Involved?
CERTs is your opportunity to play a role in shaping energy conservation and renewable energy in your part of Minnesota. By relying more on community-scale renewable energy resources and energy conservation, we can build community and create local economic development opportunities.
