Industrial park gets sun power

Tenants at the Business Development Center in Sturgeon Bay will be getting some of their electricity through solar panels this year. Those panels are part of the Door County Economic Development Corporation's 2020 capital budget.  Part of the funding came from a WPPI renewable energy grant.  Jim Schuessler, with the DCEDC, says the conversion to LED lighting at the industrial park was very well received by tenants.  He says adding a solar array was a logical next step.


Schuessler says it's hoped that the success of solar power at the business development center will encourage other Door County businesses to seriously consider adding their own solar array. The Business Development Center system is scheduled to be operational by August 6th.
