Priority Power ("Priority Power") is proud to add to the storied history of electrification in Beloit, Kansas with the official opening of the Beloit Solar Farm ("BSF"). BSF is a 2MW solar farm that will provide clean, renewable, reliable electric power to the City of Beloit.
The Beloit community has been a leader in electrification since the creation of their first power plant 124 years ago, which still stands today. The solar farm is the latest example of residents’ commitment to clean energy, having purchased hydropower, natural gas, and wind energy in the past. This project will allow the City of Beloit to continue to provide reliable, cost-effective power to the community while also delivering another sustainable energy solution to its customers.
The Beloit Solar Farm was developed and built by, and will be operated and maintained by Priority Power, a leader in energy optimization and electrification infrastructure. The farm will provide enhanced reliability to the city’s power portfolio and help meet future demands from customers with more affordable energy during peak demand hours.
"Our community has been a leader in self-generating energy for over a century, and it is truly an honor to be able 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 has helped this project come to life, providing the expertise to bring this project to fruition 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 for our local students, both in local schools and NCK Technical College. Our community might be humble and typically keep quiet, but we are very proud of our history and today adds to that history."
"The Beloit Solar Farm is an amazing project and we are thankful to the City of Beloit, the Mayor and Council, Jason and his team, and especially the community for their support," said Rick Borry, Managing Director of Renewable Power at Priority Power. "Priority Power has many Jayhawks and Wildcats on our team, and being able to work in a community and a state with such a storied history of power generation and electrification has been incredible."
