Solar for Schools Grant - due 1/31

The Minnesota Department of Commerce Division of Energy Resources requests proposals from qualified schools throughout Minnesota (outside of Xcel Energy Electricity Territory) for the Solar for Schools Grant Program. The program created by the State Legislature (Minn. Stat. 216C.375) is designed to provide grants to stimulate the installation of solar energy systems while using the opportunity to integrate renewable energy use into the school’s curriculum. Public schools, K-12 as well as state colleges and universities, are eligible for funding based on financial need. The application process is comprised of a School Readiness Assessment, and if deemed ready, a Full Grant Application process. There will be at least two funding rounds annually until appropriated program funds are expended. 

Deadline: Proposals due Monday, January 31, 2022
