Powering The Future
Utilities are increasingly building solar systems to help meet their renewable energy goals. Fields of solar panels along highways and community solar gardens are becoming more commonplace.
As an experienced and certified solar installer, Wolf Track Energy can help you complete large and complex projects while staying on-time and on-budget.
Our skilled team has been immersed in the solar business, building solar systems across northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. Solar isn’t just part of our business, it is our business.
Wolf Track Energy provides solar engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for utility-scale and community solar garden projects.
We have solar installation certifications from the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. And we are approved by the University of Minnesota’s erosion and stormwater management certification program to meet Minnesota Pollution Control Agency regulations.
We offer a full range of engineering services to ensure your project reaches its potential. By providing civil, electrical, structural and geotechnical engineering services, we can take a full view of the project and craft a professional design that meets your needs.
From solar panels to the racks that hold them up and everything in between — we procure the equipment that’ll make your project a reality. After developing solar projects across the Northland, we’ve developed relationships with suppliers and manufacturers of top solar brands that customers trust.
Our team will ensure your project is built on-time by hitting key milestones, all the while maintaining quality control and a safe working environment. Our project manager has completed 10-hour and 30-hour certifications from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
When you turn the system on for the first time, you can be confident knowing we sweated the small stuff and built a reliable solar system.
Community Solar Installation
Wolf Track Energy was the lead contractor for the Lincoln Park Solar Garden, which was completed in 2020.
Situated prominently just off of Interstate 35 south of downtown Duluth, the 40-kilowatt system uses adjustable racks to maximize the system’s output during the summer and winter months. Power from the system benefits a housing project known as the Duluth Veterans’ Place and an emergency energy fund for families struggling to pay their utility bills.
Duluth nonprofit Ecolibrium3 hired Wolf Track Energy to build the system.
“Working with a local solar installer to complete the Lincoln Park Solar Garden made the process of this unique project simple and enjoyable,” said Lucas Giese, a coordinator for Ecolibrium3. “Wolf Track Energy’s team was incredibly responsive and personable, and our organization felt at ease working with Duluthians that we could depend on.”
Utilities are going green
Federal statistics show solar is leading the way for new sources of electricity generation. Project planners expected to add a record 15.4 gigawatts of utility-scale solar to the grid in 2021.
Industry projections offer a sunny future for solar in the coming years, thanks in large part to utility-scale projects. The Solar Energy Industries Association expects almost 350 megawatts of solar to be installed in the coming decade.
