The Hayes Company has taken energy efficiency to a whole new level! In April 2017, our company headquarters finalized the installation of a new solar panel energy system.
We were recently approached by a company that specializes in solar panel installation. As business owners who work to make buildings more energy efficient, were happy to listen to the cost and energy benefits of installing a solar panel system. Our leaders don’t plan to move to a new facility, so why not invest in a system that will save money on energy costs?
The system recently went live, following the installation of a specific meter provided by Kansas City Power and Light. The system is powered to provide from 75% to 80% of our annual power needs. During key times of year, the solar panels may generate more energy than our building uses. At that time, this extra energy will be provided back to the energy grid for use by other businesses and homes throughout the KCP&L service area.
This investment in the system will pay for itself in just over three years. In addition, Kansas City Power and Light provided a rebate for installing this system. Not only is this a great energy decision, it’s a wise business decision!
