SPRING HILL, Kan. – One local school district is harnessing the power of the sun to power up its classrooms. Wednesday morning, the Spring Hill School District unveiled its newly constructed solar array. Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,

The school district partnered with Evergy and EnergyLink to install a solar array directly behind Spring Hill High School. The ground-mount solar field stretches across roughly 4 acres of land behind the school. Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,

Jeff Martin, vice president of customer operations for Evergy, said the high school’s land availability and proximity to the grid made it a perfect fit for the project. Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,

The high school operates on an all electric system. The new solar installation will allow the district to generate power on-site to produce a majority of the high school’s day time electric usage. Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,

“Spring Hill School District has used 3.1 million kilowatt hours over the last year. This 750-kilowatt array will generate enough energy to offset roughly 35% of the school’s usage,” Martin said. Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,

The 750-kilowatt solar array is made up of approximately 1,872 solar panels and is capable of generating enough electricity to offset roughly a third of the school’s energy use each year. 

During a ribbon cutting ceremony, Spring Hill Mayor Joe Berkey said the new installation will help the school district cut down its energy bill. 

“In year one, it is estimated the solar array will generate $113,354 in energy savings income and over $6 million in total energy savings income by the year 2052,” Berkey said. Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,

The project is financed through a Solar Service Agreement (SSA). Under this agreement, Evergy is listed as the owner of the solar equipment and EnergyLink is responsible for the maintenance of the system. The school district will not be charged for operational or maintenance costs, but will sell back a portion of the power generated at the high school to the utility company. Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,

Spring Hill High School freshman Quorynn Harris said she’s proud to see her school taking active steps to combat climate change.  Solar Damper,Lithium battery,Solar tracker actuator,Solar Tracking Controller,NMRV Series Worm Gear Reducer,Planetary gear motor,
