** Bonus Cost-share amounts are available to residents living in census tracts identified by the U.S. Department of Energy as experiencing energy justice challenges. In Edina, those tracts include an area just south of Excelsior Boulevard and another south of the Crosstown Highway (Minnesota Highway 62) between France and Xerxes avenues. Visit to learn more and see exact tracts by entering Edina, MN in the search.

***At this time all cold climate heat pumps qualify for the City’s cost share program, but note that in order to qualify for some federal incentives, cold climate air source heat pumps must meet certain minimum efficiency criteria. Talk to your installer about the requirements before selecting your equipment. The City is not responsible for any resident’s ineligibility for federal tax incentives or rebates.
