Community Energy Services, CES,  is a convenient one-stop residential energy program designed to help homeowners save energy and money in their homes.  The Center for Energy and Environment has teamed up with CenterPoint Energy and Xcel Energy as well as several neighborhood organizations throughout Minneapolis to make this program a reality.

  • FREE educational workshops to teach homeowners how to lower their energy use and save money;
  • Materials which may include: low flow showerheads, setback thermostats, compact fluorescent light bulbs, set back thermostat, gasket seals, door sweeps, 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, including a blower door test and installation of materials;
  • Personalized energy use inventory for the last 12 months and feedback for  the next 12 months to show the homeowner how these  measures and materials are resulting in decreased energy use;
  • Information on financing, incentives, stimulus funding and rebates for those wishing to complete larger projects.

Funding for this program was provided by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund.
