Home Energy Rebate Program Public Forums - 7/16-24

The Minnesota Department of Commerce is hosting six public forums to get input on how to implement the upcoming Home Energy Rebate programs. Funded by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, these rebates will empower households to make crucial energy improvements, from upgrading to efficient electric appliances to adding insulation and modernizing home wiring to support home electrification. 

The forums aim to gather local perspectives, insights, and priorities from those who will benefit from the program, ensuring inclusivity and reaching populations often underrepresented in decision-making processes. They will include an informative presentation on the program, opportunities for the public to ask questions, and breakout conversations. Project team members will be available for one-on-one and group discussions.

Forums are free to attend and will be held at:
