Cascade Renewable Energy (CRE) began providing solar products and services to customers about two years ago. Since then, CRE has successfully installed nearly 500 kW of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems in Michigan, covering over a 125,000 sq. ft. area. These systems provide hundreds of thousands of kWhs of energy every year. One of the many CRE residential and commercial installations includes the PV system, which was installed on top of the North Plant in 2010.
