HOM Furniture is committed to sustainably practices through the responsible use of forest resources and is one of the largest award-winning recyclers in the Midwest. It is not just HOM products that reflect this dedication, but their facilities too – they have high-efficiency LED lights and 75F smart sensors in numerous show rooms, stores, and parking lots. In their next sustainable step, HOM Furniture reached out to Cedar Creek Energy to bring solar energy to three of their Minnesota locations: Rogers, Bloomington, and Oakdale.
Cedar Creek Energy began by assessing the available roof space of each location, along with performing a detailed analysis of the stores’ energy usage statements and history. Once consumption needs were calculated and a plan was designed using Cedar Creek Energy’s customized, consultative approach, we worked closely with HOM Furniture to secure their enrollment in the solar PV Demand Credit, a popular incentive for commercial solar customers that allows them to generate additional cost savings for the energy their system produces during peak hours.
The Final Result
HOM Furniture is proud to be powered by solar energy provided by Cedar Creek Energy! The annual 1,818,500 kWh of energy produced by all three of these locations helps HOM stores operate on clean, renewable energy, and prevent over 2.8 million pounds of carbon dioxide emissions from being released into the atmosphere.
HOM’s Rogers onsite solar energy generation will offset nearly 60% of the electricity required to power the facility and equates to over one million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions prevented from being produced by non-renewable sources. On average, the arrays will provide enough electricity over their 30–35-year life to provide the equivalent power for more than 8,000 single-family homes. HOM Furniture and Cedar Creek Energy are proud to be partners in sustainable energy!
