Fittingly, you can trace the roots of today’s CEE all the way back to twin beginnings in Minnesota’s Twin Cities — in the Energy Office of Minneapolis in 1979 and as a consortium of St. Paul neighborhood organizations in the mid-1980s.
Each helped define the framework for a national energy efficiency movement and established our team’s long history of collaboration to develop and deliver energy efficiency programs for homeowners, renters, businesses, and communities.
