Whether you are interested in protecting the environment through reducing your use of fossil fuels, or paying less on your energy bills, or a combination of both, a solar panel system is a terrific way to increase your home’s energy efficiency.
The Arden Hills City Council encourages the use of renewable energy in the community, especially options such as solar panels. In fact, the new the Army National Guard facility, serving as the Red Bulls' Headquarters, installed a solar array to assist in powering their building. Any Arden Hills resident interested in installing solar panels on their home must obtain permits from the City of Arden Hills, followed by an inspection of work once the project is completed.
If residents are curious to see if their property has solar potential, the University of Minnesota has a solar assessment tool: solar.maps.umn.edu/app.
Look for more information about going solar in the April newsletter.
