Seed Grants from the Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) for community-based projects related to energy efficiency, renewable energy, electric vehicles & energy storage are due October 8, 2021.

Every two years, CERTs seeks seed grant applications for clean energy projects. We have awarded over $1.3M to 393 projects since 2006. Could yours be next?


Hot off the presses


New energy guides for renters, landlords, and owners of single family and manufactured homes provide ways to be comfortable, safe, and efficient, how to understand energy bills, and ways to get support if needed.

The guides—available in English, Spanish, and Somali—can even be customized with your organization's logo and details. Energy savings videos in English and Spanish for manufactured homes are also included.




“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.

Could you join them? Take a moment to learn about careers and training opportunities available across the state.
