Brewery Emperial, located in the Crossroads of Kansas City, Missouri is a cool, up-and-coming micro-brewery that caters to clientelle of all ages. They knew that solar would offer a way to reduce their energy costs and wanted to take advantage of the KCP&L utility rebate offered in Kansas City. However, their building was not ideal for solar on the rooftop because of limited space. The brewery also needed an overhead cover for their customers seated in their beer garden.
Good Energy Solutions evaluated the building and determined that an ideal solution would be a LUMOS solar array canopy that would double as a covered seating area for their customers in the backyard beer garden. In addition to the utlity rebate for solar, the owners would be able to take full advantage of the 30% Federal ITC Solar Tax Credit by installing in 2019.
Solar saves Brewery Emperial approximately $3,000 per year in electricity costs. Because of utility rebates and tax credit the owners were able to reduce the cost of their system and structure by nearly $65,525. Lastly, the structure provides an expansion in seating space allowing more opportunity for increased business. By choosing to weatherproff the Lumos Solar Canopy customers are able to enjoy sitting outside even when it is raining.
