Priority Power energizes 2-MW Kansas solar project
Priority Power has announced the official opening of the Beloit Solar Farm in Beloit, Kansas. BSF is a 2 MW solar park that will supply the city of Beloit with renewable electricity.
The Beloit community has been a leader in electrification since its first power plant was established 124 years ago, which still stands today. The solar park is the latest example of residents’ commitment to clean energy, who have purchased hydropower, natural gas and wind energy in the past. This project will enable the city of Beloit to continue to provide reliable, cost-effective power to the community while providing its customers with another sustainable energy solution.
The Beloit Solar Farm was developed and built by Priority Power, who will also operate and maintain the plant. The farm will provide greater reliability to the city’s energy portfolio and help meet future customer demand with more affordable energy during peak hours.
“Our community has been at the forefront of self-generating energy for over a century, and it is truly an honor to continue that history with the official opening of the new Beloit Solar Farm,” said Jason Rabe, Beloit City Manager. “Priority Power has been a great partner and brought this project to life by providing the expertise to complete this project in a challenging environment. This project will provide another tool in our toolbox to provide more affordable, reliable power to our customers and will provide educational opportunities to our local students both in local schools and NCK Technical College. Our community may be humble and generally silent, but we are very proud of our history and contribute to that history today.”
