The Clean Energy Resource Teams are excited to announce 39 Seed Grant awards to organizations in its seven regions!
Each region was awarded around $20,000, catalyzing energy efficiency and renewable energy across the state. CERTs has awarded more than $1 million to over 300 projects since 2006.
Locally, Minnesota State College Southeast received a grant for $3,500 for Winona area weatherization installers pool. The college will gain the skills necessary to incorporate Building Performance Institute (BPI) air leakage control (ALC) installer training into its curriculum; local contractors will also receive ALC training through the grant. Currently there are no BPI ALC certified contractors in the Winona area, which may stop residents from utilizing some utility rebates.
