CERTS (Clean Energy Resource Teams)

CERTS UPDATE as of 7/24-18: 

  • Something that may be of interest to you is the MPCA grants for Level 2 EV Chargers. More information:
  • The Department of Administration has a site where you can also look for funding opportunities:
  • Just a reminder that helps you to find policies and incentives by state. Including rebates from your utilities.  I just accessed it to locate my utility rebate for air conditioning (getting a new one installed only took 3 days short of 2 months)

Some anticipated funding opportunities for this fall and early  2019 are:

  • Clean heavy-duty off-road equipment:  Anticipating applications opening fall 2018.  This round will fund the replacement of heavy-duty off-road diesel engines and equipment, including switcher locomotives, ferries, tug/tow boats, and construction equipment eligible under the Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA). This includes some idle reduction technologies for switcher locomotives.
  • Heavy-duty electric vehicle grant program. Anticipating applications opening in early 2019 This round will fund electric alternatives to heavy-duty vehicles and equipment or their engines.

The Clean Energy Resource Teams—or CERTs—are a statewide partnership with a shared mission to connect individuals and their communities to the resources they need to identify and implement community-based clean energy projects.

They empower communities and their members to adopt energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy technologies and practices for their homes, businesses, and local institutions.
