Year in Review


How did CERTs serve Minnesota communities in 2020?

2021 is off to a fast start, but we wanted to take a moment to reflect on 2020 and the 283 Minnesota communities we helped build clean energy during this strange & challenging year. Thanks to our many partners & everyone doing this work!




“Energy Burden” is the percentage of household income spent on home energy bills. The nation’s average energy burden is roughly 3.5%, but some Minnesotans spend 20-30% of their income on energy.

With an all-in, concerted effort, Minnesota can reduce the energy burden of all of our families and households to under 5% of their household income by 2025. We're going to need all the help we can get to make this possible. Join us!


Solar Schools


Imagine this headline in the near future: "All Schools in Minnesota Utilize Solar Power." Wouldn’t it be amazing if solar energy powered the education of our state’s 845,404 students?

60 school districts in Minnesota already benefit from solar, and there has never been a better time for even more schools to take advantage of clean energy opportunities. A dramatic drop in the cost of solar panels, combined with new financing choices, has now made solar widely available for schools.




Clean energy employs over 61,000 people in Minnesota.
