Lake Street Energy Challenge

Getting energy efficiency and renewable programs to your door

The Lake Street Energy Challenge promotes energy efficiency and renewable energy programs through neighborhood groups and business associations along the Lake Street corridor. This initiative is delivered through the Midtown Community Works (MCW) Partnership and Xcel Energy’s Partners in Energy. The Lake Street Energy Challenge focuses on expanding the reach of residential, commercial, and renewable programs. This two year initiative completed a planning phase between September 2014-February 2015 and kicked off in June 2015.

Interested in getting involved? The Lake Street Energy Challenge will work through neighborhood organizations to do outreach around Home Energy Squad®, Xcel Energy’s Home Lighting and Refrigerator Recycling, and community solar programs. We are working with community members interested in energy issues to plan a series of events in 2015 and 2016. These events will share information about energy efficiency and renewable energy programs you can use whether you are a homeowner or renter. Let's make a more sustainable energy future a reality!
