Kearney solar park ribbon cutting Monday
KEARNEY — The ribbon cutting for Nebraska’s largest solar array will be at 2:30 p.m. Monday.
Partners in the project — the city, Nebraska Public Power District and SoCore Energy — announced the event on Thursday to celebrate Kearney’s new solar park at 4707 Antelope Ave.
The $11 million project will generate 5.8 megawatts of electricity, about 5 percent of Kearney’s peak demand. The ribbon cutting will take place on-site with Lt. Gov. Mike Foley and David Bracht, director of the Nebraska Energy Office, as guest speakers.
