SunPower Commercial Solar Array at Central Presbyterian in Kansas City, Missouri

 Central Presbyterian chose to go Solar for the “The love of God’s creation”.

 

Challenge

Central Presbyterian Church located in Kansas City, Missouri was looking for a way to reduce energy costs at their beautiful 1923 historical building. KCP&L rebates in the KCMO market peaked their interest in going solar.

Solar Solution

Good Energy Solutions evaluated the property and identified the roof as having great solar potential for its flat surface and limited shading. The church chose SunPower X-series for the price point and value of longevity over other commercial solar panels on the market. With the SunPower solar array designed by Good Energy Solutions, Central Presbyterian can expect an approximate offset of 72% of their energy use. That is an approximate annual savings of $12,414. Plus with the KCPL utility rebate of .50/Watt the church applied the incentive value of $44,160 off of the cost of the solar array.

Customer Benefit

A SunPower solar energy system is the perfect solar solution for customers that are interested in longevity. Central Presbyterian Church has been at its location since 1923 and plans to remain for years to come. In addition, creating their own clean energy with a solar energy system is the perfect way to practice their organization’s motto: “We will maintain facilities in a way that respects creation, conserve resources, and share what we have.”

“The representatives from Good Energy Solution were sensitive to our needs, carefully considered the age of our building and were respectful of the sacred nature and history of our Church.  They, with support from SunPower, provided a payment plan to suit our needs.  When engineers identified a structural challenge, Good Energy worked closely with us to provide an alternative panel design which would provide the projected kw hours and remain within our budget.  The 25 year warranty on a product made in the USA was a big consideration in our decision to move forward.”  —  Mary C.
