The City of West Plains, Missouri, will associate with electrical utility Evergy to present solar power to the group. Evergy will construct a 9.6-MW solar array within the city that can generate sufficient energy to power 1,200 properties.
“Evergy is excited to share our renewable energy expertise as part of our community-based solar partnership with the City of West Plains,” stated Lloyd Jackson, managing director of Evergy Energy Partners. “The solar array will provide affordable green energy to the community for many years to come.”
The announcement comes as West Plains celebrates Public Power Week.
“We are excited to add solar to the energy sources that power our community. The solar project with Evergy will give us an opportunity to provide [educational] opportunities about renewable energy and provide rate stability for the future,” stated Jeff Hanshaw, public works director for West Plains.
Evergy’s Energy Partners division gives complete energy administration options, asset optimization, threat administration and advisory companies and renewable energy choices to utilities, massive industrial clients and impartial power producers.
Evergy Energy Partners has constructed a staff skilled within the improvement of renewable energy technology to serve public utilities and native governments. A lately accomplished related project in Baldwin City, Kansas, now offers solar power to properties in that group.
