Green Business

Is your business looking to make energy improvements?

The Edina Emerald Energy Program (EEEP) assists property owners with the costs of energy-related building improvements through what are called Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) partnerships. In essence, the City acts as an intermediary in the financing of these improvements and allows the property owner to repay the loan through a series of yearly "special assessments" paid alongside regular property taxes. 

The Grandview Tire & Auto location on 70th Street has the distinction of being the City’s first Emerald Energy Program partner. A newly installed 27-kilowatt solar panel system made possible only by EEEP funding makes Grandview one of the most energy-efficient auto repair facilities in the Midwest.

For more information on the EEEP program, contact Environmental Engineer Ross Bintner at or 952-903-5713

You may be able to reduce your energy costs by 35 percent! A building Energy Star rating may require only simple changes to reduce energy consumption. Having a business energy audit is the first step; contact the Center for Energy and Environment to schedule your energy audit today.
