Whole Foods Co-op (Denfeld) Solar Project Ribbon Cutting!
October 18, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Come and join us at Whole Foods Co-op, Denfeld, as we continue to make progress toward sustainability and support local economic growth. On Wednesday, October 18th at 11 a.m., we will be holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate our latest milestone. The event will be attended by our staff, key project leaders, the Duluth Chamber of Commerce, and locally elected officials. After the ribbon-cutting and a short presentation, light refreshments will be served in the indoor seating area.
In late August 2023, Solar Bear installed a 145-panel rooftop solar array, with panels assembled by Heliene in Mountain Iron, Minnesota. The new solar array is located at our 4426 Grand Avenue store and will generate approximately 83,000 kWh each year. When combined with the existing array on the southwest wall, it represents one of the largest commercial installations in Duluth. This new installation will reduce carbon emissions and offset the Denfeld location’s energy use by 25%.
