A new program administered through the USDA with assistance from the Minnesota Clean Energy Resource Teams helps small businesses in Greater Minnesota find and apply for grants to switch to less expensive, more earth-friendly renewable energy. Grants cover up to 25 percent of the installation costs and loans cover up to 75 percent of the cost.

Applications for the first round of grants are due June 30. For more information, visit mncerts.org/GreatRenewables or call Fritz Ebinger at (612) 626-1028. Related article.
