Businesses of all shapes and sizes across Minnesota are switching to solar, cutting their monthly electric bills, reducing their carbon footprint, and impressing their customers with their commitment to environmental sustainability. By going solar, you’ll join the thousands of Cedar Creek Energy clients who have benefitted from harnessing the power of the sun.
Benefits of Switching to Solar for Your Business
Does your business have a year-round sunny spot? This could be the key to energy independence and increased cash flow.
Over the past ten years, the return on investment in solar energy has only risen. After grants, state and federal tax incentives, utility bonuses and other rebates, the average commercial solar energy systems cash flow within four to seven years, depending on the project’s size. And, take note, there is a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty on your solar panels and inverters. Not only is it a smart investment, but a safe one, too.
If you’re still not sold, here are other benefits of going solar for your business:
- Tax Credits and Rebates – Our solar energy systems include immediate tax advantages like tax credits, accelerated depreciation, bonuses and other incentives tied to performance.
- Create a Revenue Stream from Electric Company – Besides eliminating your monthly electric bills, you create cash flow by selling excess electricity back to your electric company- that’s money you can reinvest back into your business!
- Property Value – Commercial solar energy systems increase the value of your property.
- Build your Brand – Solar panel systems build your brand name and strengthen customer loyalty. Solar is an investment your customers will be proud of.
- Carbon Footprint – Best of all, you’re doing your part to reduce your carbon footprint and help our planet!

Next Step? Schedule a Free Energy Audit
We offer free energy audits to determine whether your site is a good candidate for a solar array. We look at whether your business would be better suited by a roof-mount or a ground-mount system and use technologies to determine the exact sizing, placement, and the best solar solution for your business.

Commercial solar energy uses solar panels and other components to power a commercial property using energy from the sun’s rays. Minnesota commercial solar installers focus on creating cost-effective yet environmentally conscious solar array configurations for businesses and other commercial applications.
An Alternative to Owning Your Solar Array: Power Purchase Agreements (PPA)
With all the benefits of using solar energy to power your business, and none of the infrastructure and capital investment required to buy your own system, Cedar Creek Energy is pleased to offer Power Purchase Agreements. With a PPA, Cedar Creek Energy completes the design, permitting, financing, installation and ongoing maintenance of your system, then sells the electricity you use back to you at lower rates than those you would pay through your electric company.
