Green Wing Energy Challenge for Businesses

The Red Wing community developed Green Wing in collaboration with Xcel Energy to encourage less energy use and the creation of more renewable sources across Red Wing. We’re challenging local businesses to save money and help the community by participating in simple energy saving programs. It’s that simple! We’ll come to your business and show you all the places you could be saving money. It’s true, and we’ll help you do it!

Green Wing Energy Challenge

How do I get started?

It’s easy! Call Xcel Energy Business Solutions Center at 855-839-8862 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and say “I’m a Red Wing business owner. What can I do to save energy?” and you will work with an energy efficiency specialist to identify your most critical energy priorities, and provide recommendations for your short and long term goals.

Would you like to begin with an energy assessment to find energy savings through your whole building? Xcel Energy’s Turn Key services is a great place to start. Download Xcel Energy's Turn Key application and view case studies that show how Turn Key Assessments have helped businesses save thousands!

If you would like a local Green Wing representative to coach you through the process, please email Jay McCleary or Paul Cardinal, Green Wing business coaches. All participants and information are kept confidential.

You can also get started by visiting the Business Toolbox page, featuring information on all energy saving resources available to businesses.

An ongoing effort

With your permission, Green Wing will develop case studies that highlight each business’s efforts in energy efficiency so that others may learn through the successes of the programs offered. Together, we’ll transform the city (and save money doing it)!
