Funding available for Minnesota Clean Energy Projects

Do you and your community need funding to get an energy efficiency or renewable energy project off the ground?

The Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) provides Seed Grants to support the labor costs for clean energy projects that spur community development in Minnesota.

Project proposals should be for community-based energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that also provide forums for community education about the technologies and their economic, ecological, and community benefits.

“Since 2006, CERTs has awarded more than $1.2 million to over 355 projects,” said Lissa Pawlisch, CERTs Director. “Those projects ranged from energy efficiency for a food cooperative to solar power for schools, and much more.”
