(St. Paul, MN) — June 22, 2024 – Governor Tim Walz today announced Minnesota has received $62 million from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for solar projects that will help families save on energy costs. The Solar for All grant will support a variety of solar programs serving low-income and disadvantaged communities.

“We can tackle climate change while saving families money. These grants are a great example of how we can make that happen,” said Governor Walz. “Minnesota’s health, well being, and economic future depend on us taking climate seriously. This grant is a major step in the right direction as we continue to create clean energy jobs and move toward 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040.”

“The Solar for All grant will save Minnesotans money, reduce energy costs, and reduce pollution from carbon emissions,” said Commerce Commissioner Grace Arnold. “This grant is one of the many ways we are leveraging federal funds to invest in clean energy for healthier, safer homes for families and communities across Minnesota, especially low-income households and communities most affected by our changing climate.”

Minnesota’s grant is one of 60 announced by the EPA as part of the $7 billion in Solar for All grants across the country. The EPA estimates the solar energy initiatives will save $8 billion in energy costs for an estimated 900,000 households.

With this announcement, the Commerce Department has been awarded over $800 million for clean energy and climate resilience funds since the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and the Inflation Reduction Act were signed into law in 2021 and 2022.
