Evergy Energy Solutions and EnergyLink designed and installed a new 750-kW ground mount solar array behind Spring Hill High School in Kansas to supply clean power to the Spring Hill School District. The array was made possible through a PPA sponsored by Evergy Energy Solutions, a non-regulated affiliate of Evergy.
The array, which features a combination of bifacial and monofacial solar panels, provides both energy resilience as well as a learning opportunity for students for years to come. Spring Hill High School plans to incorporate the new solar array into its curriculum moving forward, with the goal of promoting careers in energy and sustainability.
“This solar array is a remarkable investment in both the Spring Hill school district and the community as a whole,” said Jeremy Nolen, EnergyLink’s lead on the project. “We’re excited to see how the project and the energy savings it provides will impact the programs, teachers and students at Spring Hill High School over the long-term.”
The solar array is expected to offset the school district’s electricity usage by about one-third.
