CERTs welcomes Tess Dornfeld, SE CERT Regional Coordinator

Welcome, Tess!

The Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) welcomes Tess Dornfeld as the CERT Regional Coordinator for the Southeast region. Tess will be working to advance the overall CERT mission to connect individuals and organizations with the technical resources they need to identify and implement community-based energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, across the Southeast region.

I really value what CERTs does after following this work for many years, and I look forward to reconnecting with the communities of Southeast Minnesota and getting to know the whole region even better, and working especially with marginalized communities for a just and equitable clean energy transition.
