Generating 5 megawatts of solar energy, the LES community solar facility was the first utility-scale solar installation in Nebraska, and is still one of the largest in the region.
The project was developed by Enerparc, and LES contracted for all energy produced by the facility. The installation, located at Northwest 75th and West Holdrege streets, uses 15,333 solar panels to produce enough energy to power 900 typical homes in Lincoln.
Enerparc began construction in March 2016, and the solar facility went online in June 2016. At the time of its completion, over 1,200 residential and business customers voluntarily contributed funds through the LES SunShares program to help support a portion of the facility. Businesses enrolled in LES SunShares.
LES hosted a dedication event Sept. 16, 2016.
