Minnesota Energy Resources is now offering rebates for non-profits servicing low-income communities. New construction organizations can take advantage of rebates for efficient technologies if the low-income homes are served by Minnesota Energy Resources. The rebates will be issued to the non-profit that submits the application and is responsible for the project. Applications must be received within 60 days of installation, and are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
