Lawrence Nature Center Gets Solar Grant



LAWRENCE, Kan. - A Lawrence nature center has won a grant from Westar Energy to install solar panels. The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/1nvV26z ) the Prairie Park Nature Center was one of 15 projects chosen by Topeka-based Westar for funding.
 
Eileen Horn, the city and county's sustainability coordinator, says Westar will pay for the solar panels and their installation. The panels are expected to produce about 25 percent of the nature center's electricity, resulting in savings of about $1,300 a year. The project will include a kiosk where visitors can see how the solar panels work and how much energy they're producing. Horn says the project should be up and running this fall.
