Commercial Solar

Solar for your business

Businesses are increasingly turning to solar energy to power their operations. Corporate behemoths like Apple, Amazon and Target are some of the biggest commercial solar users today, but you don’t have to be a Fortune 500 company to reap the benefits of solar energy.

Declining solar prices and financial incentives make it more feasible than ever to harness the sun’s rays to power your business.

While energy use will vary from industry to industry, utility bills are likely a significant expense for your business. The average monthly electrical bill for Minnesota commercial customers was $658 in 2019, according to federal statistics.

As a locally owned and operated business, Wolf Track Energy understands the opportunities and challenges facing companies in the Northland. And we’re uniquely positioned to help them prosper with our array of energy services.

We’ve helped businesses reduce their utility expenses by going solar, so contact us below to learn how we can do the same for you.

Why Should Your Business Go Solar?

Companies can use solar panels to produce their own electricity, reducing the amount paid to their local power company and shielding them from future rate increases.

The federal government offers a 30% tax credit for solar installations. Commercial solar users can also use accelerated depreciation to cut installation costs.

Consumers are concerned about their carbon footprint, which affects where they decide to spent their money. According to a recent survey by IBM and the National Retail Federation, 57% of consumers “are willing to change their purchasing habits to help reduce negative environmental impact.” Installing solar panels helps clean up the electrical grid, helping users meet their sustainability goals.

Solar for Schools in Minnesota

Minnesota lawmakers created the Solar for Schools grant program to encourage K-12 schools and higher education institutions to invest in renewable energy sources.

Schools can get up to 70% of the project costs covered by the grant, and another 30% covered by the new direct pay incentive included in the Inflation Reduction Act. 

Our team is ready to help your school go solar, as we did at the Cloquet Middle School. We installed a 45.92 kW rooftop solar array after steering the project through the grant and permitting process.

“I wanted to reach out to say Thank You for the great job you have done with the Solar Project at the Middle School. …the community is very impressed in the way you executed this project,” said Brock Wilton, Director of Facilities and Grounds at Cloquet Public Schools. “Major things discussed and noted by our team were the minimal impacts to school operations, excellent use of the staging area, clean work areas, no noise complaints, and great communication.”
