Seed Grant Funding Available for Minnesota Clean Energy Projects

Energy efficiency measures like lighting and HVAC and renewable energy technologies like solar and wind have been taking off in Minnesota for the last decade. Do you and your community need funding to get a community-focused project off the ground? The Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) can help.

“Since 2006, CERTs has awarded more than $1 million to over 270 projects,” says Lissa Pawlisch, CERTs director. “Those projects ranged from solar on schools to city street lighting, from renewable home heating to faith community energy outreach and much more.” Past projects can be seen on the CERTs’ website,

CERTs Seed Grants support labor costs for Minnesota projects. The focus is on community energy efficiency and renewable energy. Projects should be highly visible and replicable and also spark conversations about clean energy benefits.

Applications are due by October 20, 2017. Award announcements will be made in early 2018.

Funding for these projects is provided through the Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resources.
