On top of having one of the best names in the solar industry, Good Energy Solutions from Lawrence, Kansas has also completed some of the coolest solar projects in the Midwest. They recently completed a beautiful LSX canopy for a new micro-brewery, Brewery Emperial.
Brewery Emperial, located in the Crossroads of Kansas City, Missouri is a cool, up-and-coming micro-brewery that caters to clientele 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 utility rebate for solar, the owners would be able to take full advantage of the 30% Federal ITC Solar Tax Credit by installing in 2019.
