In the spring of 2010, CCLEP spearheaded an effort that brought together the City of Grand Marais, Cook County, and the Iron Range Resources Rehabilitation Board (IRRRB), to install a solar array at Gunflint Hills, a city-owned golf course. The system is grid-tied, meaning the electricity from the solar panels flows into the electrical grid, which carries the electricity throughout the county.
