About the NEC

The Neighborhood Energy Connection (NEC) is a 30-year-old Saint Paul-based nonprofit organization that provides energy conservation information, services and programs to residents and communities across Minnesota.

We partner with individuals, community groups, utilities, businesses, and institutions to design and deliver high-quality energy conservation services.

The NEC is proud of our innovative programs, our skilled and committed staff and board of directors, and our wonderful partners. We'd love to serve you!
