Learn how to reduce your energy use and save money! The City of Minneapolis has partnered with the Center for Energy and Environment, CenterPoint Energy and Xcel Energy to offer more Minneapolis homeowners Community Energy Services, a full service residential energy program.

Community Energy Services (CES) Provides:

  • Free educational workshops to teach homeowners how to lower their energy use and save money;
  • Materials which may include : low flow showerheads, setback thermostat, compact fluorescent light bulbs, gasket seals, faucet aerators, pipe insulation and more to help participants save now;
  • Customized home energy visits from qualified professionals who will identify additional ways for residents to save in their homes. Up to $400 in services and materials for a co-pay of only $30 (some neighborhoods choose to buy down the co-pay);
  • Personalized energy use inventory for the last 12 months and feedback for the next 12 months to show the homeowner how these low- or no-cost measures resulted in decreased energy use, also allowing participants to compare their energy use to that of their neighbors also participating in the program; and
  • Access to financing, incentives, and rebates for those wishing to complete larger projects such as insulation or a furnace replacement.

Funding for this project was provided by the City of Minneapolis’ Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant Funding and the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources.
