Kansas' First Community Solar Project, Largest Solar Array Announced

March 19, 2014

Midwest Energy and community solar developer Clean Energy Collective (CEC) announced on March 17 that they have signed an agreement to build a 1-megawatt community solar photovoltaic array. It will be the largest in Kansas, with panels owned by Midwest Energy members throughout central and western Kansas.

The 4,000-panel solar garden will be located within the Midwest Energy service territory, making renewable energy ownership available to all of Midwest Energy’s 50,000 electric members. The purchase price for panels in the array will include all available rebates and tax incentives, as if the system were located on the customer’s roof. Customers will receive credit for the power their panels produce directly on their Midwest Energy electric bills. See the Midwest Energy news release.
