PUC cites solar savings
Let it shine.
Brainerd Public Utilities, using state and federal grants, has installed an array of solar panels on the roof of its offices on Highland Scenic Road in Baxter.
The purpose, said Scott Sjolund, Brainerd Public Utilities technology supervisor, will be to cut back on peak electricity use times at the facility
“Ideally, it’s going to shave the peak with it, which saves the utility the most money and in turn helps us keep our rates down,” Sjolund said.
