After learning about solar energy from another local business, Bill Hanisch, owner of Red Wing's popular Hanisch Bakery, decided to go solar himself.
"I looked at all the numbers and said, I don't know why anyone wouldn't want to do this. The payback is very quick," Bill shared. "We're in our second year with solar now and it's going great. It's cool to look down at your roof and see it covered in solar panels. Good feeling to have—to know you're doing something right."
During a virtual event on January 27th, 2021, Bill Hanisch was joined by Minnesota energy experts who dug into the resources and programs that make it possible for others to follow in Hanisch Bakery's sweet footsteps.
