About this event

Clean energy, in the form of energy efficiency or renewables, can save businesses money while also creating jobs, stabilize electric prices, and helping the environment. But lack of financing and the need for up-front capital are major barriers. Stop in to this virtual event for 45 minutes to learn about revenue neutral and/or cost-effective upgrades, and how to incorporate multiple sources of funding and grants into your project.

This free event is designed for businesses, non-profits, and contractors, particularly those in Xcel Energy utility service territory in southeastern Minnesota. Options for non-profits and multi-family buildings are also covered.
