BPU plans free solar seminar March 19 for KCK residents

The Kansas City, Kansas, Board of Public Utilities has a new Community Solar Farm Program opportunity available to residential customers in the Kansas City, Kansas, community.

To explain how this affordable program can benefit area households, BPU will hold a free Community Solar Seminar on Monday, March 19.

The seminar will be held at West Wyandotte Public Library, 1737 N. 82nd St., Kansas City, Kansas. Two sessions will be offered, from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Senior Vice President of Project Development Loren Williamson and Solar Developer Lindsay Case from MC Power Companies will address how community solar works, basic costs, utility bill credits, and how residents can access solar energy and avoid installation and maintenance.

BPU’s David Allen and Andrew Ferris will also provide assistance to those interested in leasing solar panels.

Participants can look forward to learning about these topics:
• How solar panels supply electricity to the average household
• The benefits of Community Solar versus Rooftop Solar Systems
• What participants can expect when they sign up to participate

BPU customers owning or renting a home or apartment are invited to attend. To reserve seating for the 4 p.m. or 6 p.m. session, contact David Allen at 913-573-9922 or dallen@bpu.com.
