The solar array will also significantly reduce the fire department’s carbon emissions – preventing over 267,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions annually

Cedar Creek Energy has completed a solar photovoltaic (PV) array at the Superior Wisconsin Fire Department headquarters, making it the first municipal solar initiative in Superior.

Through the partnership, which sought to equip the fire department’s infrastructure for an eco-friendly future, Cedar Creek Energy installed a 153.1 kWh DC solar array to support the department’s plans to expand its EV fleet within the next three to five years – including the potential addition of an all-electric fire truck.

The solar array will also significantly reduce the fire department’s carbon emissions – preventing over 267,000 lbs. of CO2 emissions annually.

“Our collaboration with the Superior Fire Department embodies our vision for a sustainable future,” said Rob Appelhof, CEO of Cedar Creek Energy. “This project is an example of environmental stewardship and innovation. We’re honored to have contributed to this historic initiative and excited for the department’s green journey ahead.”
