Minnesota Power Grant Program offers grants of up to $50,000 to its commercial, industrial, and agricultural customers who use innovative technologies, improve manufacturing processes, undertake renewable electric energy projects or who need project design assistance. Eligible projects include renewable energy products, new electro-technologies that lower energy costs per unit of production in a manufacturing process, innovative technologies that are new and underutilized in the regional marketplace, and the inclusion of energy-efficient options in the design phase of a project.

Grants are ranked and awarded based on least grant cost per kW (annually) and/or kWh (lifetime). Design assistance grants are awarded on a case-by-case basis. All improvements qualify for a $200/kW rebate, and the maximum annual grant will be determined by the customer's average billing demand based on the following schedule:

Customer Demand Maximum Rebates(s)

  • 0 to 100 kW $10,000
  • 101 to 300 kW $25,000
  • Over 300 kW $50,000

Customers may submit as many grant requests as they wish but will receive only one grant in each one (calendar) year period. The program year ends on December 31.
