What Sets Our Minnesota Solar Installers Apart

Energy Utility Benefits

Cedar Creek Energy creates a bridge between you and your utility company on all solar power and energy savings projects. We make sure your solar project qualifies for all available rebates, including the Solar*Rewards® program. We will also make sure that your project maximizes the power savings and potential solar revenue through our partnership with Minnesota’s largest utility.

We Do the Job Right

We go the distance for our clients and our colleagues.

What does this mean? It means we will do what it takes to build the highest quality, most affordable solar panel energy solution that is uniquely customized and engineered to give you the maximum return on your dollar, and protect your investment for the next 25 years or more. We go the distance because we care. We go the distance because we are thorough. We go the distance because we know how. We go the distance because we are on the cutting edge of solar technology and because it gives us great enjoyment to create residential and commercial solar panel solutions to maximize your investment and minimize your headache along the way. No project is too complex.

We Don't Outsource

We ensure that the quality remains consistently high with our in-house team of experts.  You will know who you are working with every step of the way with Cedar Creek Energy. We are available to you and will involve you in our design, build, installation, and monitoring of your system at the level you wish. That means if your goals dictate an end-to-end turnkey commercial solar energy system and you just need to know when the work’s getting done, on budget and on time, that’s what we’ll do. If you want more of a day-to-day partnership, we are all-in. Or maybe you are a large firm that doesn’t have expertise or staff in an area of engineering, procurement, or construction, and want a company that can seamlessly integrate into your overall plans. That would be us. Or maybe you need your brand-new 3-million-dollar solar array monitored, serviced, and maintained. That would be us, too.

Outstanding Client Service

Responsive. Flexible. Ownership of the Project Every Step of the Way.

We treat our clients like we ourselves would like to be treated. This is a core value for all of us at Cedar Creek Energy. This way of being comes to us naturally.  You will experience the difference of working with a company team that truly cares and listens and then makes things work for you the way they said they would. It really brings a level of reassurance that makes a project go much smoother for our clients at every stage.
