Do you and your community need funding to get an energy efficiency or renewable energy project off the ground? The Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) can help.

CERTs seeks to provide seed grants to support the labor costs for clean energy projects that spur community development in Minnesota. Project proposals should be for a community-based energy efficiency or renewable energy project that also provides a forum for community education about energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and their economic, ecological and community benefits.

"Since 2006, CERTs has awarded more than $720,000 to over 165 projects," said Lissa Pawlisch, Clean Energy Resource Teams Director. "Those projects ranged from energy efficiency for city-owned buildings to solar power for schools, from on-farm wind power to renewably-heated greenhouses, and much more." Past projects can be seen at http://projects.mncerts.org, and case studies can be read at http://casestudies.mncerts.org. CERTs offers many tools and resources to help you plan your project, so get started today!

Proposals must be submitted no later than 4 p.m. on Monday, August 6, 2012. To learn more and apply, visit http://rfp.mncerts.org.
