Trillion BTU Energy Conservation Program

The Trillion BTU Energy Conservation Program combines public and private money to help Minnesota businesses lower their energy costs and reduce energy consumption.

Additional Programs:

The Energy Savings Partnership Program brings reduced interest rate loans for energy efficiency & energy savings projects. Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE Program) is an innovative way to finance energy efficiency and renewable energy upgrades to buildings.


   A growing body of research demonstrates that ENERGY STAR certified buildings on average use 35% less energy than comparable buildings, command higher occupancy rates and rental premiums, and reduce air emissions as well as operating costs. According to ENERGY STAR data,buildings that benchmarked for three years saw an average energy savings of 7%. Whether you want to reduce your carbon footprint or simply save money, energy efficiency is key. You must measure your energy use in order to manage it. The MN ENERGY STAR Challenge will help you to track your energy consumption with the EPA’s (Environmental Protection Agency) ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manage and provide assistance to become ENERGY STAR certified.

The Port Authority’s New Markets Tax Credit Program is available for investors who put up money to fund business-expansion loans in depressed areas.
