Energy Efficiency Programs

We help energy utilities to design and implement innovative, cost-effective energy efficiency programs for residential, multifamily, and commercial customers. Employing behavioral research and a "one-stop" approach, we aim to overcome traditional barriers to better energy use.

Our programs also come with cost-effective marketing strategies and incentives to achieve energy savings through direct action by individuals, businesses, and communities. CEE's highly skilled engineering staff provides technical assistance with a focus on providing practical solutions for complex energy issues.

Energy Fit Homes
This certification is designed for existing residential properties to recognize homes that meet energy efficiency standards. Getting the Energy Fit Homes certification provides peace of mind that you are doing the right thing for yourself, your family, and your environment.
Energy Intelligence for Industry 
We provide real-time energy feedback to help industries manage energy use and identify energy waste. Customers learn how much energy they are using and when they use it. The program is available to small industrial customers in Xcel Energy's Minnesota service territory.
One-Stop Efficiency Shop® 
This full-service rebate program sponsored by Xcel Energy is designed to address small businesses' biggest concerns when shifting to better lighting — limited financial resources and time, limited knowledge of lighting products, and limited access to quality contractors.
Home Energy Squad 
Our home visits help families save energy and money. The program is available to homeowners who are either a CenterPoint Energy natural gas customer and an Xcel Energy electric customer, or who receive both natural gas and electric services from Xcel Energy.
Multifamily Energy Savings Program 
This program is designed specifically to address the needs of multifamily building owners. Sponsored by Minnesota Energy Resources, the program serves low-income housing, senior housing (55+), assisted living, on-campus college housing, condominiums, and apartments.

In addition to delivering high-quality programs, we also have experience working with communities and businesses to design and develop programs tailored to each client's strategies to achieve specific goals. Contact Carl Nelson to talk about CEE's program design offerings.
