U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) highlighted significant federal funding she secured to boost energy efficiency and lower energy costs in Blue Earth County. Klobuchar was  joined by members of the Blue Earth County Board.

The funding will bring energy efficient, renewable energy infrastructure to government buildings across Blue Earth County, including the Historic Courthouse.

Klobuchar has been actively involved in securing this federal funding for projects benefiting communities in Minnesota through a process called “Congressionally Directed Spending” (CDS). During the CDS process, Klobuchar has considered project proposals and advocated for funding in close coordination with leaders from across Minnesota. Projects are expected to receive funding over the next several months.
