Virtual Home Energy Squad Visit


The Center for Energy and Environment (CEE) is offering FREE virtual Home Energy Squad visits.  The hour-long virtual consultation with an HES energy expert could help you discover many easy ways to reduce energy use in your home with no-and low-cost energy saving options.  The consultation can also help identify bigger future projects so you can get started when the time comes.

To find out more about what's included in a virtual HES consultation, call 651-328-6220 or learn more and sign up online.

Energy Advisors


For some you will go right from our virtual visit and be connected to a team of energy advisors.  Others will be connected to the advisors after your in-home visit.

If your home has an opportunity for significant savings through larger home improvement projects such as additional insulation, attic air sealing, or replacing old heating equipment, the energy advisors make these larger steps easy by connecting you with a vetted list of qualified contractors, specialized financing and utility rebates.

Have questions after your visit?  Contact the energy advisors at 612-244-2484 or energyadvisor@mncee.org.
