Cooperative Energy Futures works on various projects and events relating to organizing communities, holding workshops, researching energy efficiency, and working outside companies to be able to provide the best services.
Our big past accomplishments are:
- completing a bulk insulation project with 7 households in the Merriam Park neighborhood of Saint Paul in 2008, gaining a discount for the homeowners and motivating them to take action
- working on community mapping of clean energy and energy efficiency in Mahtomedi
- providing free home energy workshops in English and Spanish to 30 households in the East Phillips neighborhood in partnership with the East Phillips Improvement Coalition (EPIC)
- completing a bulk insulation project in the South Minneapolis area with 10-12 households.
