Senator Frentz receives the 2021 Energy Efficiency Champion Award

Chair of the Senate DFL Clean Energy and Climate Caucus, Senator Nick Frentz (DFL-North Mankato), was presented with the 2021 Energy Efficiency Champion Award from the energy efficiency experts at the Center for Energy and Environment (CEE). This award is given “to recognize outstanding work in innovating and improving cost-effective energy efficiency opportunities in Minnesota.”

“I’d like to thank CEE for honoring me with this award,” said Sen. Frentz. “This year, multiple energy efficiency bills were signed into law that I am proud to have been a leader on. Most notably is the nation leading Energy Conservation and Optimization (ECO) Act. The ECO Act ensures businesses can save energy and money, make homes more comfortable and efficient, and employs thousands of Minnesotans in the energy efficiency workforce.”

“I also am proud to have been the chief author of legislation establishing a $5 million state building efficiency revolving loan fund (SF 543). This newly established revolving loan account will provide loans to state agencies for energy conservation improvement projects.”
