How We Can Help

Underserved Communities

CERTs can help you make connections, find resources and capacity, and explore new programs and partnerships.

A Partner in Serving Your Community

People should not have to choose whether they're going to heat their home or buy food. As an organization dedicated to serving underserved communities, you know that energy costs are a burden for many Minnesotans, and that energy efficiency and renewable energy can be part of the solution. CERTs can help you make connections, find more resources and capacity, and explore innovative new programs and partnerships.

Unbiased & Free

The Clean Energy Resource Teams work across the state of Minnesota to provide organizations like yours with the best unbiased resources, tools, guidance, connections, funding opportunities, events, and stories to provide effective programs. Best of all, we're not trying to sell you anything: Our services are free.

END ENERGY BURDEN BY 2025

 

“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!
