Solar for Schools

Getting Started

Adding solar energy for the first time can often feel like an intimidating and time-consuming process. That’s why the Minnesota Department of Commerce is partnering with the Clean Energy Resource Teams (CERTs) to provide free guidance and support to applicants at any stage of the process. CERTs is available to help schools:  

  • Determine if solar is a good fit for your buildings 
  • Meet the Readiness Assessment requirements 
  • Develop and distribute a solar RFP 
  • Review and receive project proposals and other best practices 
  • Meet the Full Grant Application Requirements 
  • Review project lifetime cashflow 
  • Develop and implement solar into your curriculum 
  • Promote the completed solar project
