A little history

This website was originally called REDI Resources. The Rural Energy Development Initiative (REDI) helped to maximize rural economic development and stabilize rural economies by building renewable energy capacity, expertise and leadership throughout Minnesota, specifically targeting rural wind energy development. Over two years, REDI staff and its partners were instrumental in shaping wind energy development around Minnesota by providing outreach, education, development assistance, and low-interest financing for community wind projects. These efforts successfully educated over 2,000 people and supported the development of nearly 1,200 megawatts of community wind.  In addition, REDI partners were positioned with resources and connections to continue supporting the clean energy industry.

Input from REDI stakeholders and industry professionals indicated the need for the development of a directory—or a “one-stop shop”—of players in the wind energy development industry.  People are clamoring for a tool that can provide information to existing and potential wind energy development projects as well as the general public regarding businesses and organizations that work in the Minnesota wind arena. Our answer to this demand was to develop “REDI Resources”, a dynamic map-based online directory designed to meet these critical information needs.

REDI Resources was changed to the Clean Energy Project Builder to make the mission of the website even more clear, and continue to carry this resource into the future.
