The city of Edina’s Community Climate Action Fund aims to provide some reimbursement to those working to minimize their greenhouse gas emissions.
The program also has a bonus cost share for properties that install solar power systems.
Residents and businesses of Edina can participate in the city’s Community Climate Action Fund. This cost-share program helps to compensate for some of the funds used in increasing a property’s energy efficiency rating.
Applicants of this program must have completed an energy assessment on their property within the last 36 months of applying. They can then apply to increase their energy efficiency score by installing one of the following projects: air sealing & insulation to attics, wall insulation, cold-climate air source heat pump, heat pump water heater, or a ground source heat pump.
Another energy assessment must be completed after the project is installed. This information will help determine the effectiveness of the project on the property and correlate to the percentage earned via the cost share.
For residential properties, if your initial energy assessment score is above 95 points, you can apply for a five percent solar cost share. If the initial assessment is below 95 points, the property must install an energy efficiency project that will increase the score by five to 15 points. These properties are eligible for a ten percent solar cost share.
Businesses and commercial properties can receive a ten percent solar cost share bonus when they complete a project that reduces their greenhouse gas emissions by five to 15 percent.
