Seed Grants Available for Community Wind Projects in Minnesota
The Minnesota Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) is providing financial assistance for energy efficiency and/or renewable energy projects requiring technical assistance. Project funding can support technical assistance services (labor costs only, such as for a consultant, design professional, installer or student labor), for projects in all seven Minnesota CERT regions (Central, Metro, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest and West Central).
All applications are due no later than 4:30pm, November 2nd, 2009.
The primary objectives of this funding project are to:
- Encourage the implementation of community‐based energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in CERT regions; and
- Provide a forum for community education about energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and their economic, ecological and community benefits.
Funding for these projects is provided through the MN Department of Commerce, Office of Energy Security (OES).
