On June 20 of 2019, Stone Creek announced plans to build a 766kW solar power plant for the Buffalo Island School District. This plant is expected to offset 95% of the electricity demand for the school district.
As per the agreement, Stone Creek will build, own, and operate the solar plant on 4.5 acres of land adjacent to the school district. Upon completion, the school will enter into a service agreement to receive power at a lower rate from the plant.
The power produced from this plant over the next twenty five years will offset the equivalent of 28 million pounds of coal, making this a huge boon for both the environment and local tax payers.
On our end, we feel honored to be partnering with such a forward-thinking district, and we hope that the success of this project will encourage other districts and municipalities to start considering solar.
