KANSAS CITY, Kan., Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gardner Capital, MC Power Companies, and Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) held a dedication ceremony on Tuesday, September 26, 2017 for the newly completed Community Solar Farm. The project will provide clean, reliable electricity for nearly 150 homes in the BPU grid.
"We would like to express our gratitude to our partners at MC Power Companies and BPU for their help in completing the Community Solar Farm. These vital partnerships enable us to continue creating efficient, responsible solar energy projects," said Michael Gardner, President.
The solar farm contains nearly 4,000 photovoltaic solar panels, totaling 1.27MWac generation capacity, and is located next to BPU's main power plant south of the Missouri River, between I-435 & I-635. Residential customers in BPU's grid will have the option to lease portions of the solar farm, saving each customer-lessee around $40 per year on their energy bill and reducing their carbon footprint. MC Power Companies, in partnership with Gardner Capital, will manage and operate the facility.
The Community Solar Farm is the eighth solar project completed by Gardner Capital and MC Power Companies. The partnership has now installed over 25MW of solar capacity in Missouri and Kansas – enough to power over 3,800 average-sized homes.
