BLAINE, Minn., Feb. 26, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Cedar Creek Energy, a leader in solar energy solutions, proudly announces the completion of a groundbreaking solar photovoltaic array at the Superior Wisconsin Fire Department headquarters, marking it Superior’s first municipal solar initiative. This project highlights Cedar Creek Energy’s commitment to advancing sustainable energy and showcases the potential for municipal renewable energy solutions.

The City of Superior, inspired to shift towards sustainable energy, partnered with Cedar Creek Energy to equip the fire department’s infrastructure for an eco-friendly future.
