North Wind has an extensive track record of successful renewable energy projects, both commercial and residential, solar electric, solar heating, and biomass heating systems throughout Wisconsin. Please take a look at our body of work over the years.
Description: This system sits atop the Organic Valley headquarters in La Farge, WI. The array is made up of 214 SolarWorld modules and powered by 2 SolarEdge 33.3kW inverters. This site will receive over 80,000 kWh of clean energy each year!
