Conservation Improvement Program (CIP)
This program is in partnership with local utility companies to help low-income residents in Scott, Carver, and Dakota counties conserve energy by replacing old household appliances. A home energy audit must be conducted before clients are able to participate in the program. It is available to those who qualify for the Energy Assistance Program through the Scott Carve Dakota CAP Agency and are customers of one of the following utility companies. The current participating utility companies include: Dakota Electric, Xcel Energy, Minnesota Valley Electric Cooperative, and Shakopee Public Utilities.
