Mission

To empower residents, businesses, and government through collaboration & education increasing sustainable energy practices.

Vision

Cook County is the rural role model for net zero energy.

The Cook County Local Energy Project

(CCLEP) is a non-profit organization located in Grand Marais, Minnesota. We coordinate and catalyze collaborative projects with partner organizations in order to promote the increased use of renewable energy and the application of energy efficient practices and technologies in Cook County, MN. We facilitate an equitable and sustainable transition toward locally-controlled, resilient, low-carbon energy production in Cook County. We support and advocate for the sovereignty of Indigenous nations, who share this land we call home.

 

The CCLEP Board meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 5 pm.  CCLEP board meetings are open to the public. If you would like to join us or be on the agenda, please contact us at localenergy@boreal.org
