  • GreenHalo Builds Homes- EcoRidge Development

We’ve teamed up with GreenHalo Builds to bring client’s the high-efficiency home of their dreams. This partnership ensures both GreenHalo Builds and our team at Cedar Creek Energy can provide top-notch service and highly efficient systems to newly built homes throughout the state. The first development is called EcoRidge in Stillwater, MN.

As with all our customers, we meet them where they are. For the folks at GreenHalo Builds, they have made a significant commitment to build smart, energy-efficient homes. So, solar is a natural choice for them. What makes this project so much fun is that we have come together with their team to make their already great homes even better. The first EcoRidge project includes:

  • 16 Jinko 315-watt panels 
  • 5.04 kW system size

The first system went live in November, 2020  and will produce 5,796 kWh within the first year of production. Clients will save $725 in their first-year, and over a lifetime will save over $18,000.

For this project, clients received:

  • Tax credits and rebates for the first year: $4,300
  • Xcel Energy Solar Rewards Rebates for the second year through the tenth year: $400/year
  • Rate of return on investment in less than 7 years

In addition, each home can also easily add a Tesla battery storage and Tesla Electric Vehicle charging stations to their home.

We are thrilled for our client’s to experience their high-efficiency homes and the savings they’ll receive!
