Metro CERT Clean Energy Accelerator



Metro CERT Clean Energy Accelerator

Communities across Minnesota are looking to take action on clean energy projects, but sometimes knowing where to start, who to involve, and how to get from an idea to a completed project are steps that make the process seem daunting. Making those difficult steps easier, and getting through them faster, is what the Clean Energy Accelerator is all about.

What is being offered? The Metro region of the Clean Energy Resource Teams (Metro CERT) is helping to accelerate community-based clean energy projects in Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Scott, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright Counties through two separate assistance offerings.

Who is this intended for? Ideal participants are community-based organizations or groups that are committed to achieving one or more goals around energy efficiency or renewable energy. Participants include local governments, schools, neighborhoods, utilities, faith organizations, civic groups, and business associations.
