ABOUT

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 and facilitate 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 once a month, and meetings are open to the public. If you would like to be on the agenda, please contact us!
