We’ve worked hard to make solar energy easy for you

At BPU, we take pride in the fact that we are one of the greenest public utilities in the nation. With 48% of our power production coming from renewable energy sources, ranging from wind power to hydropower and landfill gas, we offer you energy options that are environmentally friendly.

That’s why we’re excited to continue our dedication to providing greener energy by offering you the opportunity to take advantage of our BPU Community Solar Farm. Now you can easily lease panels from BPU and enjoy the benefits of being greener without the hassle of rooftop solar panels.

Why go solar?

The BPU Community Solar Farm allows every BPU residential and commercial customer to harness the power and savings of solar energy for themselves and create a cleaner KCK. In fact, there are a number of ways that our Community Solar Farm will impact and benefit the community:

  • Reducing the carbon footprint of KCK. Each panel eliminates 12 tons of carbon dioxide from the environment!
  • Allowing users to receive sustainable energy and reduced energy rates. Not only do users enjoy clean and renewable energy in their own homes without the hassle and cost of installing their own solar panels, but they also receive approximately $38.40 annually in energy credits applied to their bills.
  • Creating solar accessibility for all members of the community. Even non-homeowners (for example, people who reside in apartments, condos, etc.) or homeowners who don’t have the option of installing solar panels can have access to clean and sustainable energy to use in their homes.
  • No cost to BPU or its other ratepayers. Only those who subscribe to lease a panel pay anything – rates do not increase for any other BPU users.

How it works

1. Sign up to lease a panel.

Residential participants may lease anywhere from one to 10 individual photovoltaic panels from the Community Solar Farm. Commercial customers will be able to customize their lease depending on the size of the customer. Panels can be leased for approximately $400 each and will remain in service until September 2042. Participants can “return” their panel subscription back to the farm for any reason assuming the panels have been leased for a minimum of 12 months.

2. Receive a credit on your statement every month.

For every panel you lease, you’ll receive approximately $3.20 per month via a credit on your monthly statement for the duration of your lease.

3. Enjoy knowing that you’re actively reducing your carbon footprint.

By spreading the benefits and savings of renewable solar energy to all participants, BPU allows users to lower their environmental impact while saving money in the long term.
