About the Collaborative

A joint effort from Center for Energy and Environment and Minnesota utilities to promote heat pump adoption across Minnesota. 

Our Goal

started in 2019

The MN ASHP Collaborative strives to establish heat pumps as the preferred option for both customers and contractors when upgrading their heating and cooling systems, offering an efficient and eco-friendly alternative to traditional air conditioners.  

Through strategic initiatives and collaborative efforts, we aim to influence codes and standards that prioritize the use of air source heat pumps over traditional air conditioners by 2035.
