The Saint Paul Tenant-Landlord Energy iNformation, Education and Resource Guide (ENERG) is a written guide that aims to be a hub of information, education and resources about energy efficiency in rental housing in the city of Saint Paul and the state of Minnesota. The information, education, and resources range from education about energy sources, to information about utility programs and organizations providing services to renters and property owners, to resources on financing programs for home improvement upgrades.

The partnership of Community Stabilization Project and Fresh Energy seek a vision of energy and housing justice, and how it can be achieved in response to climate change and the affordable housing crisis by engaging renters and landlords on energy efficiency programs and improved housing throughout the city. The present challenge is for housing, climate and energy advocates to work together to eliminate barriers of access to sustainable, affordable, healthy and comfortable housing for all.

This guide aims to be a resource to address these issues and barriers and promote collaborative and regenerative relationships between renters and landlords.
