Home Energy Rebates Program: Public Engagement Opportunities

July 25 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

The Minnesota Department of Commerce will be holding six public forums to provide opportunities for the public and interested stakeholders to inform the design of Minnesota’s Home Energy Rebate programs, funded through the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. These programs will help households make energy improvements, like upgrading appliances to efficient electric models, adding insulation, and modernizing home wiring systems 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. The forums 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:
