All Minnesota State bonded projects—both new and substantially renovated—that have not begun their Schematic Design Phase prior to January 1, 2015 will be required to meet the Minnesota Sustainable Building 2030 (SB 2030) 2015-2019 Energy Standard. Projects that have begun their Schematic Design phase prior to this date will be subject to the prior 2010-2014 requirements. Note that several documents below have different versions depending on which Standard is being used.
To Begin the Process
