under Minnesota Statutes, section 116C.779, subdivision 1, to the commissioner of commerce
for a grant to the city of Northfield for a pilot project that develops and deploys a distributed
energy resource management system for Northfield's electricity grid that enables the efficient

grid components while maintaining system reliability and producing clean local generation.
