Brooklyn Park Goes Solar!

Our goal as a Minnesota solar energy installation company has always been to provide energy-efficient solar energy solutions with a great ROI to any organization or homeowner who would like to save money and help the environment. From residential properties to large organizations, each solar project makes a lasting impact on the new solar user and on the environment. With that being said, we are always excited to complete a large project because we know how exponentially impactful these expansive solar arrays are. We recently had the opportunity to complete the largest city solar project in Minnesota. Read on to learn about this exciting milestone in Minnesota’s solar history.

More About the Project

Cedar Creek Energy partnered with Standard Solar and Apex Efficiency Solutions to complete the city of Brooklyn Park’s citywide solar project. CCE was honored to design, engineer, and construct the city’s solar array. Panels were installed at several locations around the city for a grand total of over 6,000 panels providing power to several city facilities. This project will save the city $60,000 in 2020 and over $5.5 million over the next 20 years! And one of the best parts? The project was totally paid for through a Minnesota solar grant, federal tax credits, and a contribution from a third-party investor. That means this solar upgrade won’t cost taxpayers a dime.

Seeing A Future in Solar

On July 8th, Mayor Jeffrey Lunde announced the completion of the solar panel installations at Brooklyn Park’s city facilities. Minnesota Governor Tim Walz, Congressman Dean Phillips, Speaker of the House Melissa Hortman, Rob Appelhof, Alex Gast, and other clean energy supporters joined the news conference to talk about the importance of environmental sustainability. Speaking about solar energy, Governor Walz said, “This is not a political choice that has to be made, this is just a smart choice.”

A local news station published an article about this project with even more great information, including footage of the news conference on July 8th.
