Better Buildings

Highly efficient homes and commercial buildings make Minnesota a great place to live and do business. Fresh Energy is identifying new data-driven opportunities that save money – for home owners, renters, and companies – and improve the health of our communities.

Making multifamily housing more energy efficient: a win-win for building owners and renters

New success stories developed by Xcel, CenterPoint, and the Minnesota Department of Commerce show the benefits of a “one-stop” whole building approach to spur energy efficiency in multifamily buildings.

Innovative project to benefit renters and building efficiency

Through the Saint Paul Tenant-Landlord Energy Project, Fresh Energy and Community Stabilization Project are seeking to build a network of renters, landlords, and other critical stakeholders in the city to advance policies, provide education on energy-related issues, and support implementation of collaboratively developed solutions.

Buildings of the future and a more electric economy

In order to dramatically reduce our buildings’ energy footprints, we need to make them so super-efficient that they can run on small amounts of clean electricity.

Bringing older homes into the electric economy

As wind and solar markets grow, Minnesota’s electricity is getting cleaner and it’s becoming increasingly beneficial to power more of our economy with electricity. Just because you live in an old house doesn’t mean you can’t move toward a carbon-free, electric economy.
