What are the Regional CERTs?

Clean Energy Resource Teams are located in our seven Minnesota regions. Each region has a team, a coordinator, and a steering committee. The regional teams are diverse—business owners, farmers, members of environmental groups, local utility representatives, local government staff and elected leaders, academics—and all share common goals and values.

Why Get Involved?

CERTs is your opportunity to play a role in shaping energy conservation and renewable energy in your part of Minnesota. By relying more on community-scale renewable energy resources and energy conservation, we can build community and create local economic development opportunities.

Regional Projects & Resources

Each region has it’s own priorities and has provided Seed Grant funding to local projects since 2005. Current project details, case studies, upcoming events, recent blog posts, and more can all be found on the regional pages! Use the map on the left to find yours.
