Program Resources


The Minnesota Department of Commerce, Division of Energy Resource (DER) is program administrator for the Guaranteed Energy Savings Program (GESP).  The program provides state agencies, local units of government and school districts with the technical, contractual and financial resources necessary to implement Energy Savings Performance Contracts (ESPC). State agencies may access the State’s GESP Master Contract directly.  Local units of government and school districts will need to enter into a Joint Powers Agreement with the Department of Commerce to access the GESP Master Contract.
